Healing with horses

Healing with Horses, in conjunction with Therapy Hooves, is an innovative program that uses human-animal interactions to address the physical, emotional, psychological, and educational needs of individuals with mental health issues.

The benefits of animal therapy are numerous. Interaction with animals in a safe and controlled environment encourages empathy, improves focus, provides mental stimulation, presents opportunities for socialization, and can contribute to the physical well-being of the participant.

Healing with Horses will provide two types of animal interaction:

Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) provide opportunities for motivational, educational, and/or recreational benefits to enhance the participant’s quality of life.  Participants may choose to groom, walk, or read to a horse (miniature or full size) under the supervision of trained volunteers. Therapy dogs registered through Pet Partners will also be available.

Whats going on

We are half-way through the riding year and things are going well!  This year definitely looks different due to COVID-19, but we remain committed to our mission of helping people overcome life’s obstacles through equine interaction. 

As we navigate the ins and outs of working during COVID-19, we have discovered numerous opportunities to help us provide a safer environment.  We will continue to follow the latest CDC recommendations and have implemented the following new procedures for the safety and welfare of our students, staff and volunteers:

  • Students (and any accompanying family members), staff and volunteers are pre-screened daily for cough and shortness of breath, and are being instructed to go/stay home if any issues arise.
  • Students (and any accompanying family members), staff and volunteers are required to wear face coverings for the protection of others.
  • Students will not be grooming or tacking their horses at this time. Volunteers will groom and tack (saddle) the students’ horses before mounting to limit the handling of equipment.
