Being here today helped me regain a sense that there is always hope, even at times when you may feel hopeless.
The experience today was most soothing and serene. The staff was amazing as interactions with the horses produced a new and positive therapeutic atmosphere.

Shamrock Reins is the best! I’d come every day if I could. This is not only a chance to interact with horses, but a chance to get to know myself. Who knew you could learn so much from a horse…..Shamrock Reins!!!! Thursdays are the best days of the week because it means I’m going to Shamrock Reins. In fact I get an attitude if my session is cancelled due to weather. I can’t say enough about the staff, volunteers, and the horses. You feel welcomed from the time you get out of the car. They are concerned about my wellbeing, safety, and overall growth. Janet is always thanking us, but what she is doing for me and other Vets is better that any thank you she could say. Thanks so much to Janet, all the staff and volunteers. Love you guys!

I've wanted to do something to help the men and women who fight for our freedom, but I didn't know what. I attended LVMAC, Leigh Valley Military Affairs Council, meetings on the third Wednesday of each month starting last June. In July, Janet Brennan came and gave a virtual tour of Shamrock Reins. She was using horses to help the men and women with PTSD and other traumas to get them back on their feet. It sounded cool and very exciting. It was also close to where I lived. In September, I went over to check it out. I liked what I saw and the people who worked there were very warm and caring. I joined in October and have been going there every Saturday and other days since. I believe in what Janet is doing and I've seen some very happy faces leave there after their encounter with the horses AND their excitement of returning the following week. I am grateful for Shamrock Reins, not only for the fulfillment I receive from helping our WARRIORS, but also for what Shamrock Reins wants to do FOR our WARRIORS. Thank you Shamrock Reins for being there for our WARRIORS!

Every time I come to the stables there is an opportunity to grow and learn, as well as helping with the barn or programs. The positive and encouraging atmosphere provided by the staff welcomes all who come to Shamrock Reins, both participants and volunteers alike. The horses add their own flavor and energy to the grounds! Every day is different. It is truly a wonderful experience on many levels. Looking to the future, it is exciting to think of all the possibilities that could be available to be developed!

I have worked with horses for many years and in different therapeutic programs. Shamrock Reins has introduced me to another area of therapy that is a totally new concept. The interaction between the horses and the participants is a great exercise in patience and understanding. (This includes me). This physical and mental challenge relates to everyday life on many levels and has opened a new door of understanding for me. Just stand back and watch different situations unfold and how the horses and participants deal with them. It is a lesson in life. I am happy to be part of this caring organization that opens its heart to all.
