Horse and Human Rehabilitation Centre
Welcome to Lincoln Park Horse and Human Rehabilitation Centre where rescue horses rescue humans. It was established from a passion to help defence veterans and horses in need. After operating for a year we discovered that there was a need to help more than just veterans in the community and have expanded to include everyone that may benefit from equine therapy. As a child of a Vietnam veteran I experienced first hand the impact PTSD has on an individual and their family. Due to this it inspired me to help by using my passion and skill of rescuing horses in need for equine therapy. Equine therapy is a great alternative to the more clinical counselling usually offered to veterans. Studies have shown that being around horses can affect human brain wave patterns and adjust moods. The horses we use in our program are real rescues that may have suffered neglect, abuse or come via RSPCA seizures. They are rehabilitated using only gentle natural horsemanship methods. This process is included in our therapy program for clients.
