Having a traumatic brain injury can be limiting and frustrating. Simple task become a challenge and memory can play daily tricks that are not enjoyable at all and make one feel like a fool.
One of our veterans has come a long way from almost never speaking to conversing and opening up after long trail ride in canter and especially after learning to jump. After one of those successful jumping lessons where Clue was just a charm and made sure the rhythm and joy of jumping was truly experienced by the soldier rider, the father of three came up to me and shared. He loved jumping, and he mentioned how happy and relaxed it made him. He said it kept him going, and Clue is saving his life.
