At our evening meeting last night, Chula Vista Sunrise Rotary welcomed Franchesca from the San Diego Therapeutic Horsemanship. We received an update on our adopted horse, "Smokey," and were reminded of all the good that takes place at SDTH. Franchesca, a certified riding instructor, explained the benefits that riders can gain, from leadership skills, interpreting non-verbal cues, building self-confidence. and mood regulation. SDTH works with adults and children with PTSD, anxiety, trauma, physical ailments, and autism. In addition, many veterans work with the horses as well. CVSR is proud to support Smokey and the work he does!
