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

Our Supporters

One thing is certain: without our supporters, Horses Healing Humans would not continue to thrive as it has over the past five years. Thanks to you, all of our clients have a chance to participate in equine therapy — regardless of their ability to pay. This generosity is a shining example of our community’s profound unity and goodwill. You’ve supported over 2,400 lessons in the last year alone, with volunteers contributing 6,700 hours. That translates into support for hundreds of children who needed a place to learn and feel safe. A place for adults to ground themselves and pursue their goals. A place for veterans to privately engage with professionals with the specific training, credentials and experience to help. So from everyone on the Horses Healing Humans team, we thank you.
