Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our mission is to improve the minds, body’s and spirits of children and adults with life-threatening illnesses, chronic pain disorders, disabilities, PTSD, at-risk youth, children of poverty/low income families, and able body riders through Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies, Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy programs and Horsemanship lessons. Joy can heal in so many ways and we strive to help in the healing process for individuals, families and friends with individual programs designed to foster the development of self-esteem, respect for themselves and others, horsemanship skills in handling and riding, as well as principles of kindness, responsibility and care for all animals.
The value Kingman’s Healing Hooves offers to our community increases tenfold when we’re able to offer services that are within reach of the entire population of Mohave County. We are a therapy facility that is a Safe Place free of judgement. We provide a social outlet for making new friendships and building confidence in those who have been victims of bullying, sexual and/or mental abuse. Through increased programs and interactions with our CHA Certified Instructors and Certified Therapy/Lesson Horses we will improve the minds, bodies and spirits of our community members.
