Hey, my names Harley and I’m from Ararat northwest of Ballarat which is where the Equestrian centre is. I started this program on the 18th of July (The day before I turned 18). I’m usually an angry depressed person and I tend to hold my emotions in and bottle them up and take it out on the people closest to me. After starting this seven week program I have learnt to accept my emotions and the fact that everyone feels the same way at some point in their lives. I started this program because like I said earlier I am a depressive angry person. That all came about on the 29/07/07, 10 days after my 12th birthday when I found out that my mother had passed away in a car accident. This program has taught me how to be who I am and how to basically use my negative emotions to be a happier person. Spending time with the horses (which I was initially afraid of) has been beneficial. Spending time with the horses allows me to learn how I feel inside as they are mirroring animals, the basically display the same level of the same emotion that a person is. This program has been amazing and has turned my life around, I’d recommend this program to absolutely anyone having trouble in their life or just feeling down. I am now a much happier and cheerful person and I owe it all to Emily and everyone else who has helped me through these difficult times in my life. Thank-you everyone, I will miss you all.
