In partnership with SBS, IBA is proud to showcase a series of segments with strong Indigenous businesses. The first in the series featured on SBS Small Business Secrets on Sunday 12 January.

This segment covered Bianca Stawiarski's business Warida Wholistic Wellness and a touching story of how equine therapy helped transform a young girl's life after a traumatic experience.

As firefighters and victims struggle with the impact of catastrophic fires, Bianca says therapy with horses can help first responders and accident victims overcome a range of traumas. She is a strong women with a gentle way.

We love seeing Indigenous businesses excel and this is a great example. Watch for the next episodes each weekend on SBS Small Business Secrets and check out the video for Bianca's series below or read the article, 'The Indigenous therapist working with horses to help people heal trauma'.
