Male survivors of sexual trauma have been working with rescued horses to help them develop trust and to manage post-traumatic stress.
Ken Clearwater of Male Survivors Aotearoa introduced the concept to the group. Many of the men have never been around horses.
He saw how equine therapy had been developing overseas.
“I see it as a huge part of our programme from here on in, and the national body are really keen to see it work as well.”
