Gayle Brittain was moved at a fund raising event where she met Sherri Clement, the Founder & Executive Director of Hope Rising, and learned about human trafficking. Afterwards, she couldn't stop thinking about it and did research on the statistics in Texas regarding human trafficking and also discovered the useful tool of equine therapy for victims of trauma. The more research she did on equine therapy, the more she was convinced that she needed to put her knowledge and expertise with horses to use in order to make a difference in the lives of people. She determined that the EAGALA model and its reputation was the model she would choose. She is now trained and certified as an Equine Specialist.
"After practicing equine therapy for over two years and seeing the outcomes of what equine therapy can do for trauma victims, special needs, and families to make them whole", she stated, "I know I made the right choice."
On November 22, 2019 Horse Power Equine Therapy was formed and the business foundation established. Intensive training ensued in order to ensure that all staff is trauma informed and holds to a high level of professionalism and integrity.
