Miley, a black and white pony, knows the pain of divorce.
When the little girl who cared for him moved away after her parents divorced, the pony became depressed and wouldn’t eat for weeks. The horse trainers at Project H.O.P.E.—an equine assisted therapy program—helped Miley.
And now Miley is helping children whose lives have been upturned by divorce. “She’s become our poster horse for divorce,” says Sandy Tebbe, director of Project H.O.P.E. “Divorce is hard on children because they have no control in the situation. We use horses and a peaceful country atmosphere to help bring healing to children and families going through the pain of divorce.”
With locations in Findlay and Bowling Green, Project H.O.P.E. offers equine therapy (with a licensed therapist) and supervised visitation sessions, if needed in divorce cases.
