Project: Love Is an Action Word

Description: In her ongoing project Love Is an Action Word, Liz Moskowitz documents “the transformative experience of equine therapy” among veterans and their families at the Broken Wheel Ranch Project in northeast Texas. The program reinforces ideas of self-worth by cultivating a community and teaching participants how to care for and ride horses, from the technical skills of grooming and tack maintenance to the importance of building trust between a horse and rider. Moskowitz captures quiet moments between riders and their animals as well as scenes around the ranch in this series, exploring in rich portraits the intimate and vulnerable nature of this work.
