Two Middle Georgia facilities are hosting events to demonstrate how horses can help first responders build resiliency and overcome traumas in a stigma-free arena.
The PEACH Pit demonstration is 4-6 p.m. Sept. 10 in Fort Valley, and Spirit’s Quest’s demonstration is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 24 in Roberta. The demos are part of the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association’s global “You First” campaign.
The goal of the You First campaign is to help first responders gain a better understanding of how to help themselves. The demo is open to all first responders in the area and is closed to the public and media.
The campaign in the U.S. and Canada will be in September, historically recognized as National First Responder Month. We’ll provide meals, to show our appreciation for our first responders.
To register, contact The PEACH Pit by Sept. 5 at 478-827-3224 and Spirit’s Quest by Sept. 19 at 478-319-5344.
