At risk youth are landing themselves in prison after leaving their group homes, foster care homes or family homes. We as a society have become so busy we are leaving the children to raise themselves. We want a quick diagnosis for behavior issues and medication to sedate the child rather that taking the time to parent and nurture.
Horses are helpless to mans reckless breeding practices and brought into this world with no plan for a future, many of these horses are neglected from the day they hit the planet. Pregnant mares are left with no care during the pregnancy and the foals are often sent to slaughter in utero as breeders decide they have more horses than they care to feed and nurture.
For these children and horses bouncing from home/herd to home/herd is normal place, these children and horses never learn to bond with other beings. Consistency is so important in any young impressionable children or horses.
At Zuma's we pair these wayward souls in a nurturing healing manner and together they learn to trust and love one another. Once trust of the horse/ child pair is accomplished we can move into learning to love and nurture themselves and others.
Only with trust and love developed can we begin teaching the basic life skills necessary to succeed in today's world.
