A unique policing program called Grab the Reins in Central Otago, New Zealand, is using equine therapy to help troubled teens. Led by Senior Constable Paddy Henderson, the program teaches 12- to 15-year-olds with behavioral issues how to ride horses while building their life skills, confidence, and empathy. The program aims to help these kids take responsibility for their actions and make positive choices for their future. The participants have found the program enjoyable and have seen improvements in their behavior. The support of volunteers and the horses themselves has been crucial to the success of the program.
