"Promoting mental health and wellness through the preservation of the American Mustang"
We offer Equine-assisted learning programs for Veterans, first responders and active duty military free of charge and are conveniently located in Aberdeen North Carolina, close to Fort Bragg. EAL has been shown to help with PTSD, TBI's, and other related injuries that our military personnel may suffer. During EAL our participants develop clear communication skills and learn how to have a healthy work/play relationship with one of our horses. The ability to have a good relationship with a horse opens gateways to healthy relationships within the human world. EAL promotes the development of life skills applicable to educational, professional, or personal goals through equine-assisted activities. An EAL session consists of a participant, a horse, and a professional equine specialist working together in an outdoor setting.
We start with a 2-hour assessment session in which we introduce you to EAL and you can decide if it is something you wish to pursue.
Our training philosophy is results-driven. We produce soft, willing partners. At the Bar T, we take the role of the leader—provide clear signals, add consistency, patience and the understanding that the horse should look to his owner for direction.
“My goal is for you to understand why your horse acts as it does, and what role you must play to gain his trust,” Jim says. “Horses are much like children. Provide the proper environment and they will be yours forever. All things accomplished with a horse are through trust.”
We’re firm believers in groundwork. Regardless of the training level of the horse upon arrival at the Bar T, we will spend a substantial amount of time from the ground before we ever approach the horse with a saddle. Good groundwork is a solid foundation. Just like you wouldn’t put the framework of a house directly on the ground, we wouldn’t dream of moving forward without a foundation.
If your horse is already started and coming to see Jim for an issue, he'll take a similar approach-- he'll fill all the foundational holes from the ground up. By taking this approach, it ensures that your horse becomes a safe and willing partner.
If you’re interested in gaining Bar T training for your equine partner, plan on spending some time out at the farm learning with your horse. While it’s helpful for your horse to gain a new skill set, you won’t be able to use those tools if you haven’t learned. For your convenience, we include a select number of lessons in our training packages.
