Kelato is so proud to be involved with this program run by Uniting Care in Victoria. Horses for Hope uses equine therapy to help people dealing with a range of issues such as abuse, mental health or learning disorders, even trauma after an accident or natural disaster.
Through developing a connection with the horses involved in the project, the participants benefit emotionally, developing a relationship based on trust, empathy and mutual respect.
We love that the program has also provided a lifeline to the horses involved, many having come from difficult backgrounds where their sense of trust and comfort has been damaged. Horses for Hope has given them a wonderful new life where they are cared for, appreciated and are bringing new hope and happiness to so many people.
