(Oct. 12, 2012) The heartbreak of losing someone you love takes time to heal and when it is a child who is experiencing the loss, the process is even more difficult and unpredictable. To help children and their families cope with loss, Coastal Hospice will present “Hope and Healing with Horses” from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 20, at Kindred Spirit Farm in Salisbury.
Hope and Healing with Horses is an equine-assisted activity during which children and their families are taught strategies to express their grief, reduce stress and isolation and connect with others going through similar experiences. Horses offer a pure, nonjudgmental relationship and allow children to connect to a living being without the risk of rejection or criticism. Coastal Hospice bereavement help guides the children through their feelings.
This activity is free and is designed for children, ages 6 and older, and their families. No horse experience is necessary and riding is optional, but children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. This activity will take place rain or shine, and lunch will be provided.
Advanced registration is preferred by calling 443-944-5846 or by email@example.com.
Kindred Spirit Farm is located at 31191 Johnson Road in Salisbury.
Founded in 1980, Coastal Hospice is a private non-profit community program that provides traditional hospice services, palliative care, bereavement support, education and training to residents in Worcester, Wicomico, Dorchester and Somerset counties.
