About Our Equine Assisted Therapy Programs




This program helps children impacted by parental addiction through peer groups, horses and an evidence-based curriculum.



Participants have a chance to spend time with an eligible high school or college students to build healthy and long-lasting relationships.



Is your child stressed out? Struggling with depression, anxiety, or body image issues? Learn how horses can help.



Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) incorporates horses experientially for mental and behavioral health therapy and personal development.


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



LEAD provides business teams an opportunity to improve teamwork, communication, and problem-resolution skills by interacting with horses.
