Eagle Cleaners is proud to be a sponsor of this local community event, 100% of whose proceeds benefits horse-assisted therapy for veterans and first responders with symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD).

Equines for Freedom is a nonprofit organization that treats active and former military personnel and first responders who are experiencing symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), no matter the source of the trauma. EFF uses one of the most effective treatments available; Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which offers clients a nontraditional approach to therapy. This therapy combines a licensed mental health professional, a certified equine specialist, and a therapy horse to create a research-based treatment model which strives to resolve emotional difficulties caused by disturbing, difficult, or frightening life experiences. The horse is an integral part of treatment because horses are prey animals and therefore are extremely alert and sensitive to the emotions of those around them. Clients learn to identify their own emotional state by observing the horse’s reactions. The horse also helps the client stay grounded as they process past traumas.

EFF’s Misson is to provide equine-assisted PTSD treatment to current and former U.S. service members and first responders, regardless of the source of trauma or their characterization of service, at no charge to the service member.
