Our Mission: “Horses Healing Humans" exists to enrich the lives of people with special challenges through Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies.

In-Kind Giving

Horses Healing Humans is a privately-funded, charitable, nonprofit organization, and we rely significantly on donations from individuals, foundations, and corporations to support our programs. There are a variety of ways you can make a real difference in the lives of people with disabilities with an in-kind contribution to HHH, and gifts are used in all aspects of our operations.
