Meet Board Member Robin Ryan

I have been a horse lover from the first moment I knew what horses were!  I grew up in suburbia, not understanding why my parents couldn’t fit a horse in our backyard.  When I got my first job at age 16, before even buying a car, I bought a horse.  I was so certain that I would know what to do with my horse (an unbroken range mare) because I had spent my childhood reading horse stories.  All I needed to do was show it love, right?

As George’s sessions progressed with Midnight, he learned to use the horse’s behavioral cues to check in within himself both emotionally and physically. He began to make connections between feelings of anxiety and increases in his heartrate. As George became more self-aware, he began to connect specific thoughts and feelings.
