Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Project Horse connects people in need of renewed hope and confidence with rehabilitated rescue horses, through innovative experiential learning, wellness and therapy programs. The calming presence of horses, with their keen ability to sense and respond to the human condition, provides an ideal environment for healing and self-discovery. Project Horse is dedicated to improving the quality of life for both horses and humans, creating a unique community of mutual healing and benefit.

Through therapeutic work with rescued horses, we help emotionally at-risk children, teens and adults in Northern Virginia and beyond to find hope and healing. We specialize in providing alternative therapy services to hard-to-reach clients and to those whom "talk therapy" has proven ineffective. Our horses are integral members of our treatment team, helping facilitate connection and authentic relationship. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for both humans and horses, based upon mutual respect and empathy.
