The guest speaker at the July 11 Luncheon at Purkey's Pink Apple was Marica Ramey from Equines for Freedom.  Marica is part of the counseling team that treat military veterans and first responders experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder.  They use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) with horses as the therapeutic intervention to help these individuals process traumatic memories, decreasing nightmare, flashbacks and traumatic reactions.
