Synopsis: Healing with Horses shares the inspirational stories of those with physical or mental disabilities or emotional trauma whose lives are transformed by
a newfound relationship with horses through Adaptive Vaulting… an unique type of equine therapy. Karin Schmidt’s purpose in life is to help people through connections with horses and Kelsey is one of those people. Kelsey’s spine was nearly severed in a life-altering car accident. 4 months after her accident, she started riding horses to supplement her physical therapy. Kelsey’s therapists were amazed at the benefits equine therapy provided above and beyond traditional therapies. Her journey to overcome the biggest obstacle of her life is one of inspiration.
When a person is at their lowest, when someone has lost their way, it is hard to find help. It’s hard to find hope. The world of streamlined health and recuperation can have a very narrow view of options. Traditional Psychiatry and Psychology don’t work for everyone.
At Karin’s Horse Connection, people are offered a window to step outside of the “normal” silos and expected barriers, and they very often have extraordinary results. The trust that we have earned through the connections we have built with Karin, has given us the incredible honor to have access to follow, document, and share these journeys. We are excited to pay respect to these stories by capturing them with the beauty of cinema and sharing them with the world.
