Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Horses as Healers is dedicated to enhancing the development of children and young adults managing emotional, behavioral, social or physical challenges. Our comprehensive, professional therapeutic riding and horse care program provides youth and their families a safe and supportive environment in which to grow, regardless of ability to pay.
During our weekly lessons, we adapt to students of all ages as they learn how to care for and ride a pony or horse under supervision both in the arena and out on trails.
In our program, youth receive individualized feedback. That boosts their confidence and emotional stability while fostering their love for animals and the outdoors. Horses as Healers provides horses, riding boots and helmets to all participants.
