This Wild Horse Couldn’t Be Tamed – Until He Met A Disabled Boy.

Horses, even wild horses, have an innate sense of our true intentions. In turn, they are honest with us. This is why Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy is growing in popularity as a means to reach those who have trouble reaching out for help. Habitat for Horses will be offering Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy. We will be doing a spotlight on what our program has to offer in our upcoming newsletter. Be sure to sign up if you do not yet receive it.

The new horse on the ranch is a little rough. He gets wild around the other horses and definitely doesn’t like people. The little boy is one of only 150 people in Israel with Williams Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.

When they first encounter each other, no one expected this to happen. At first, onlookers tried to call the boy to come back, but as soon as they noticed how gentle the wild stallion became when he met the young boy, they knew something miraculous had happened. A disabled boy was the only person on the ranch who could bring out the gentle side of this beast.

This is exactly why people say “there are angels amongst us”. This encounter brought me to tears. Please SHARE the joy with others.
