Many soldiers are known to go through post-traumatic-stress disorder (PTSD). According to statistics, one in eight soldiers who fought in Iraq have clarified that they have experienced the symptoms. Many people get involved with therapy animals to help themselves during such conditions. Dogs are the most commonly used animals when it comes to helping veterans, but as this video shows, other animals like horses also offer solace.
Saratoga War Horse is an organization that provides equine therapy for veterans with emotional wounds. They use horses, some that are off the track thoroughbreds, to help veterans who are dealing with the invisible scars of war. The program teaches veterans from across the country on how to communicate with a horse. The video shows the beautiful results.
