Monty on Horse Sense & Healing

“The results are coming in and the outcome is fantastic. We have people laughing and getting back to a normal life who have been afflicted with PTSD for upwards of 35 years. All the way from Vietnam to Afghanistan, these injured warriors come home in a terrible state and need our help to get back to the civilized world. The horses are doing their work with incredible efficiency. The outcome has been so significant that I have decided to write a book about this work. I will tell you more about it in due time. For now, enjoy the extraordinary stories about horses healing people in the video.”
