Horses Healing Hearts is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that has helped at-risk youth for over a decade. Through the magnificence of the human and horse relationship, the kids are taught about responsibility and confidence. Our first goal is to maintain the kids’ physical safety while allowing the kids and horses to work their healing magic together.
Every weekend groups of kids meet at one of the local sponsor barns. During the 2-hour session, the kids learn how to groom and tack a horse, followed by a 15 minute private riding lesson. While the kids take turns riding, the other participants are led by a volunteer facilitator through a curriculum.
Learn About Our Programs
This program helps children impacted by parental addiction through peer groups, horses and an evidence-based curriculum.
INDIVIDUALS & FAMILIES
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) incorporates horses experientially for mental and behavioral health therapy and personal development.
RECOVERY / TREATMENT
Recovery clients are many times disconnected with their feeling and their physical body as a result of childhood or recent trauma.
DEVELOPMENT FOR BUSINESSES
LEAD provides business teams an opportunity to improve teamwork, communication, and problem-resolution skills by interacting with horses.
A unique combination of horses and mentorship.
Through peer-to-peer support groups led by trained professionals, children learn life coping skills enabling them to lead healthy and fulfilling lives, free from drugs and alcohol. Children learn they are not alone, that their parents’ disease is not their fault, and there are safe people who love them. Connecting with the horses is scientifically proven to reduce cortisol, the stress hormone. Horses Healing Hearts provides an environment of connection, hope and empowerment.
Our Mission, Vision & Values
Horses Healing Hearts gives hope and empowerment to individuals facing adversity to connect their feelings through unique interactions with horses, leading to freedom and healing.
Our vision is a community where all children feel loved, respected, safe, and confident to develop to their fullest potential.
Horses Healing Hearts helps foster an environment where trust, passion, respect, integrity, and compassion are integral in serving our children.
Since 2009 through current day, donations from generous people like you have helped provide this unique program.
