Rachel Belle filed this report on KIRO 97.3 FM radio:
“Moises [22 year old Army reservist Moises Lozacruz] was at the Veterans Affairs office when he learned about Rainier Theraputic Riding, a non profit program in Yelm that uses horse back riding to help active duty and veteran soldiers with PTSD. The program is completely free and soldiers can come for as long as they’d like. I asked Moises if he had ever ridden a horse before.
‘No, I rode a camel before!’
Executive director Elisia Mutter says the horses are natural therapists.”
