I was honoured to have a page dedicated to me in the latest Intelligent Horsemanship (IH) magazine.

My story is a small part of a huge movement to work with horses in a non aggressive way - I was lucky to have found my starting point with Monty Roberts, move on through some Intelligent Horsemanship training, and then find my real world using the therapy which we all know and love to help our equine friends, myself and other veterans - please stand up Mr. Jim Masterson!

As a one legged veteran with PTSD, etc, the quicker I can get back the better. As we all know, we have to be calm to use the Masterson Method to its fullest advantage, this naturally keeps me calm and 'in the moment'. Totally focused without the buzzing in my head waiting to explode. Many other symptoms have diminished as well.

At the end of the day, without realizing it, Jim has given me a fantastic way of helping horses, helping other veterans, and keeping myself sane. Not a bad result, really. Oh yes! I must also mention all of the lovely, helpful people I have met on the way - the other students, our mentors, the owners but, most of all, our equine friends - thank you to you all.
