Hugh Vail believes so vividly in the importance of virtue to help humankind elevate and find a purpose that he created Mustang Medicine and is a founding partner of the Clapham Foundation. He takes on many roles as an instructor, executive, and entrepreneur to follow his vision.
After experiencing personal losses and suffering, Hugh started a journey in understanding and dealing with loss, grief, sorrow, pain, and depression. He learned about the tendency to turn losses into poor self-esteem and adopt avoidance behaviors. Self-medicating behaviors like drugs, sex, and unhealthy dieting practices are common among those who experience extreme loss.
Instead of trying to cope with unhealthy means, Hugh wanted to understand shame, guilt, and loss in a way that would enable him and others to deal with loss and turn pain into something meaningful.
His Mustang Medicine combines positive psychology, ancient Greek Philosophy, and Evidence-based Horsemanship to deliver a safe and cathartic experience to help people deal with their grief and suffering. Workshops allow participants to apply their own strengths to develop a character that will help them achieve greatness.
