Our Story

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.

EQUINE THERAPY

Recovery clients are many times disconnected with their feeling and their physical body as a result of childhood or recent trauma.

LEAD: EQUINE-ASSISTED

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.
