We're still hammering out the details, but the J.R.P. will be in Kyiv, Ukraine offering equine-assisted therapy¹ the week of Monday, June 26 through Friday, July 1.
We're presently hoping to offer an introduction to equine-assisted psychotherapy to Kyiv area mental health professionals, as well as to offer equine-assisted therapy to children-from-hard-places there. In fact, we're excited to be able to place ourselves in service to
The Ark, a facility doing some pretty incredible things in Ukraine.
There is also some possibility that we might be able to work with some Ukrainian veterans. We're still working to explore these possibilities.
Again, we're still hammering out the details, but it appears that we'll be working out of the "Rodeo Arena," of all places, in Kyiv!
Additionally, The J.R.P. is scheduled to be at The Morning Star Ranch (MSR) outside of Budapest, Hungary from July 3rd - 8th.
MSR is owned and operated by Dr. Gabor Gyori and his family. Gabor had mentioned to Jason recently that he'd like to begin incorporating therapeutic riding into MSR's summer camp programing; especially for their campers from hard places.
Jason offered "I might know someone uniquely qualified in offering equine-assisted therapy to that population [wink]!" Jason is scheduled to be at MSR's Staff Training the week before their camp season opens to work with staff
in equine-assisted strategies they can employ during their camp season.
