Horses help veterans who may have experienced trauma

Wausau (WAOW)– Veterans dealing with PTSD are having some help from horses. Stable Hands Equine Therapy Center in Wausau is offering Veterans Assisted Sports Training or V.A.S.T.

The Stable Hands V.A.S.T. program offers horse-based activities to enhance the recovery from physical, emotional, social and cognitive struggles that veterans may face in civilian life.

“I was having a pretty tough go and once I got out here I realized this was a good place” said Harry, a U.S. Air Force Veteran who is a part of the V.A.S.T. program.
