The Horses and Humans Research Foundation (HHRF) is pleased to announce the Baylor University research team recently completed its research project, “Examination of the Effects of Equine Assisted Activities on PTSD Symptoms, Quality of Life, and Functioning in Combat Veterans.”
EC sincerely thanks Terrance for his service and dedication to the Federation as a member of its Board of Directors. His knowledge, pragmatism and good sense of humour will be missed at the board table.
This expression comes from a tradition in horse racing. Thought to have a calming effect on high-strung thoroughbreds, a goat was placed in the horse's stall on the night before the race. Unscrupulous opponents would then steal the goat in an effort to upset the horse and cause it to lose the race.
With the temperatures dipping into single digit highs and negative lows, the Ontario SPCA put out a call to the equestrian public asking for donations of blankets for their horses and ponies that are in their program and available for adoption.
