Next week will be the last Horses for Heroes for this session. It has been a remarkable journey for both staff and participants. This session has been with female veterans. What has been striking is their willingness to share what they've been through and experienced, and thier ability to address their PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) head on.  Also, interesting has been learning about the unique prespectives of women in the service, specifically, the pressure they put on themselves "to measure up/cowboy up/tough it out", etc.  I hadn't really thought about it before!  It has definately been a theme throughout this session and has provided our staff with an opportunity to address these special needs. 
We are grateful to all of the participants whose lives intersect ours and the gifts they leave with us.
Respectfully, Windy
