Jamie’s Farm: Giving Hope with Horses
Tish Fielden, Founder of Jamies Farm, shares her journey from her own personal trauma to finding the strength to rebuild and empower young people. Tish is the most phenomenal woman, with her Jamie’s Farm Family they help rebuild the lives of traumatised and disadvantaged young people and one of their approaches is Horse Therapy.
Working with these large, powerful, but sensitive animals allows children to confront their own parallel issues of fear, trust and attunement.
It also affords them the opportunity to form leadership roles and vocalise their own difficulties of dealing with power and control.
