    Suggestion: Contact the VA and see if ya’ll can get something going for Equine Therapy for Vets with PTSD (or ptsA, new vernacular ). I’ve asked a few folks and they were clueless. Has been implemented in other areas with crazy positive results. (Doesn’t have to be just for Vets, or PTSD. Some Federal funds to help you out, those with certain applicable problems, and the horses. Win-win-win!!!) Hell, I’ll be your test me, I’m serious.
