   Anyone catch Primetime last night?  Nice story on how they use prison inmates to break and train wild mustangs for therapy horses.  Actually the inmates do the initial training, then the horses move on to a "teens in crisis" facility for the finishing up. 
   What I noticed right away was, they were using the round pen and Natural Horsemanship methods.  My point is: if you can take inexperience people and teach them to work with wild mustangs and train them to the point they can be used for therapy horses... why would anyone think these methods don't work?

I saw that show & was impressed with what the inmates accomplished w/ those horses.  And it goes without saying, that those men were very affected by the horses also.   A good thing, all around.
   I met a woman last week that works in a halfway house for women, aged 18-35, and she runs a horse program there.  Looks like everyone wins.

  Absolutely, and my sister (certified equine therapy instructor) tells me the programs are at serious risk of losing their federal funding and may have to shut down.  Keep handing out free money/health care to the welfare losers, though.

Just to clarify, the progams are not federally funded.  The parents of the special needs children get funds from different state agencies and chose to spend that money having their kids come for our program.  It is those funds which are getting scaled back.
