This presentation will review findings from a phenomenological study conducted by graduate MOT students to explore the lived experiences of veterans with PTSD participating in equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT). Veterans found that this nontraditional treatment provided safety, healing, and meaning to their lives, along with establishing new routines and skills, without the stigma associated with mainstream treatment. Study limitations and future research recommendations will be discussed.
