Medicine Horse is a Colorado nonprofit that offers free/donation-based equine-Facilitated psychotherapy and learning sessions. We strive to be an industry leader in what we do. This includes our horse keeping and care.

All boarded horses participate in our therapy program. In exchange for their participation, we offer a beautiful, tranquil facility with lower boarding rates. This is also a benefit for the right horse and human that appreciate that we provide their furry friends connection and that their horses are helping others.
