How horses are used on this NJ farm to treat PTSD

Subscribe to New Jersey 101.5 FM on

The numbers of Veterans suffering from PTSD has been reported by some to be exaggerated in the U.S. compared to other nations, specifically the UK due to the connection to befits and available treatments and prescriptions. Suicide rates among veterans are also a hotly debated issue with number varying greatly depending on the study.

Regardless of the overall numbers, the one thing that is certain is many American veterans return from the battlefield, maimed and paralyzed, struggling to come to grips with their new reality. That reality often includes lengthy stays at VA hospital, long hours of rehabilitation and in many cases they will never return to the physical level they were at when they deployed.

Enter Rene Stone who founded Serenity Stables.

I was fortunate to be joined in studio by her, Adam Geller and Jessica Nutt, Adam who has a personal friendship with Rene and Jessica who recently did a story on Rene’s charitable efforts. Rene dedicates her free time using her horses to help Veterans cope with their disabilities. She’s a true NJ hero and we had a chance to catch up with her today.
