My boyfriend suffered, still suffers with crippling anxiety and PTSD due to childhood abuse, much like you. Although he's never taken part in theraputic riding, he grew up with horses and has said many times that they are the only reason he is still here.

I take him riding with me sometimes when I'm at home on my bosses horses, and it's lovely to just see him light up. We went out for a gorgeous (but chilly) Boxing Day hack when he was at mine for Christmas, and although it was a sad day on the yard for all of us, having lost a horse that morning, it definitely took all our troubles away. Having spent the first 20 minutes of the ride crying uncontrollably, I felt so much better by the time we got home.

^I'm sorry for your loss ): It's a beautiful photo none the less, and it's good to hear that your boyfriend can enjoy it with you.

How wonderful to hear how horse therapy has changed so many lives! I'm giving beginner lessons at a barn near my university as I work towards a psychology degree in the hopes of pursuing exactly that career.

Very strong of you all to share your stories, and I wish you all the best!
