Fired-Up is a two-day equine-assisted retreat for active-duty fire service personnel, both structural and wildland. The program aims to provide participants with tools to overcome the daily stress and trauma associated with operating in a high-risk environment.
Through the experience of Monty Roberts’ ground-breaking Join-Up® techniques, and other ground-based horsemanship activities, participants, and their accompanying supporters (a spouse/partner, 18+ child, parent or close friend), work through a series of trust trust-building exercises in partnership with the horses, and develop tools for overcoming trauma, improving relationships, better self self-regulation and emotional intelligence, regained confidence, and a willingness to open up and ask for help.
“After learning how to perform a “Join Up” I realized, this was what was missing in my relationship with my wife. You’ve taught me how to invite her in and provided me with a visual representation of how this works and that it can work.” – Participant, July 2022
