Peace Reins Has a New Home!!
It’s time for some good news!! These past months have presented unimaginable challenges, unprecedented highs and lows, and seemingly unending opportunities for growth. We hope that you and yours continue to successfully navigate this new world.
We were just one week away from offering our first veterans session at Peace Reins when the pandemic changed everyone’s plans. As spring arrives bringing the promise of rebirth, we are extremely proud to announce that Peace Reins is partnering with ClearWind Farm in Chapel Hill! We have found at ClearWind kindred spirits who not only understand the power of the horse-human relationship, but who also wholeheartedly support our mission to help veterans!
We are thrilled to announce that we plan to begin offering veterans programming in September!! Check back over the summer as we will be updating this site throughout our transition!
The Equus Effect Program recently released a short video focusing on four veterans who have completed the TEE program. The veterans talk candidly about the program and the process, as well as the changes it has made in their lives. We are beyond excited to begin offering this programming to North Carolina veterans soon!!
Peace Reins is seeking volunteers to help present our programming to veterans. PR uses the Equus Effect model to provide clients with groundwork-based activities that assist in developing emotional agility and enhancing relationship skills. Veterans sessions will be offered once a week for approximately four hours for five consecutive weeks. Please note that sessions will most likely be held on weekdays and additional time may be required of volunteers to debrief with facilitators following sessions.
We are looking for volunteers with solid horsemanship skills who are comfortable with all aspects of handling horses on the ground. They should also be comfortable around and able to manage sensitive information and vulnerable people. If interested, please send a brief description of your horse experience and why you would like to join us at Peace Reins to the Volunteer Coordinator.
