Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

18% of the population is disabled but need recreational therapy that is also healing & empowering. We do that! Horsemanship is a top builder of self esteem and confidence. We also train people with disabilities to work in the animal industry in our vocational rehabilitation program. 1/4 of our population are survivors of sexual abuse and trauma. Currently there are no standard treatment options know to consistently work at healing from these traumas. Therapeutic horsemanship coupled with dialectical behavior therapy is a unique and unparalleled way to heal abuse and trauma survivors.
