Horsing around

May 22, 2013

This past fall, Youth Villages completed the first year of its equine therapy service activity in Middle Tennessee, giving eight children in Youth Villages’ foster care program the opportunity to improve their behavioral skills.

The youth visited the barn regularly for interactive sessions with the horses and other barn animals under the guidance of licensed therapist Dede Beasley, M.Ed., LPC. The activity helped the children focus, learn patience and develop trust while working gently with the animals.

Youth Villages appreciates the generous donors who made this activity possible. Sessions for more youth began in April.
