Our hearts are broken for our neighbors & friends who experienced loss in the devastating December 30th Marshall Fire. Many in our community are in need of extra support right now, and Medicine Horse is here to help the best way we can.

 

We will be hosting free equine assisted therapy sessions for individuals, families, firefighters and other first responders who have been impacted by the Marshall Fire. During these sessions, folks will have an opportunity to focus, release tension and be given the space to process the overwhelming emotions they are experiencing.

 

We plan to host as many groups as needed to help with community healing. The first two groups will meet on 4 consecutive Saturdays beginning January 29. You are not required to attend all four sessions, but you're certainly welcome to. Groups are limited to 20 participants. We will continue to form new groups as community demand necessitates.

Our Values

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.

To transform:

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.

To serve:

We serve diverse populations respecting the dignity and value of each individual.
