Results: Since the official beginnings of our program in 2009, we have grown from 8 clients served over a summer session to more than 60 clients weekly over 40 weeks each year. Our program has expanded to include Hippotherapy, Advanced Adaptive Riding, Equine Experiential Education, and Breast Cancer Support and Rehabilitation. More than 95% of all participants will receive their services through scholarships. It is our mission to serve all those who will benefit, regardless of their ability to pay. We have an incredible team of therapy horses including those from loving homes with accomplished show histories, those with special needs who have come here to rehabilitate and learn a new job, and those who found themselves facing the tragic plight that so many of our American horses do...neglect, abuse, or potential slaughter in a Canadian or Mexican slaughterhouse. We work with several excellent rescues, equine professionals, compassionate individuals and a network of supporters who feel deeply committed to helping us reach our goal to help horses help humans.
