    Erica Tom, a Rutgers doctoral student those who attended the Memphis conference will recall for her presentation on the horse as a contested liminal figure in McCarthy, is also a board member of the Belos Cavalos ranch and therapy center in California. You’ve heard of art therapy and music therapy, and you may also have heard of trauma dogs and dog therapy. Horse therapy may be a new one for you, but that’s what Belos Cavalos does. They match trauma victims with horses for the theraputic value conferred by such relationships. It’s fascinating and impressive work, and it dovetails with a lot of what McCarthy has to say about human/equine relationships.

    In any case, Belos Cavalos has embarked on their annual fundraising drive. They’re a 501 C3 nonprofit so your donations would be fully tax deductible, and you would be aiding a splendid cause. Here’s a link to their web site that will tell you more:

    Check it out. It’s a worthwhile and truly remarkable project. That, and you’ll get to see some videos of some truly beautiful horses.

    p.s. we have way too many trauma victims….the idea of how valuable this service is, is bittersweet…
