power of the horse
Medicine Horse offers free/donation-based equine-assisted psychotherapy
and learning sessions.
A more connected, healthy and compassionate community
With the aid of our herd of therapy horses, we offer groups for veterans & active duty service members, people in recovery from substance abuse, people with disabilities, the LBGTQ+ population, women impacted by breast cancer, trauma & abuse survivors, children with autism, underserved/marginalized youth, and more.
Horses, animals and nature, coupled with therapeutic expertise, makes what we do at Medicine Horse truly transformative.
To heal through connection:
At Medicine Horse, we believe that healing happens through relationships, and relationships begin with connection — to ourselves, our surroundings and others. The horses offer us a safe, forgiving, and non-judgmental place to experience the healing connection of relationship.
At Medicine Horse, we believe that horses hold an ability to transform human lives for the better. When we listen, horses teach us to ground, to be present, and to connect. Working with our horses and therapists can lead to great personal insight and understanding.
To respect and honor the horse:
At Medicine Horse, we respect and honor the wisdom of the horse. We demonstrate this by making session interactions voluntary for our horses, and listening to and responding to their individual needs and requests.
We serve diverse populations respecting the dignity and value of each individual.
