Compassion fatigue is real, affecting anyone who cares for others on a regular basis,
and happens when you take on the emotions, pain and suffering of others, losing your
sense of self in the process. Horses are sensitive and calming, allowing us to feel at
home with the emotions in our body. They give us the space to release our stress and
rediscover the individual goals, values and ideals that define us as the remarkable
unique individuals we know we can be-OUR BEST SELF!
