Medicine Horse Group Programs

The horse is an intuitive, honest and responsive being

Because horse herds closely resemble the family system, our interactions with horses can lead to awareness of how we relate to ourselves and others. Each horse’s distinct personality may remind you of someone you know, eliciting emotions and behaviors that can be processed in a safe and non-judgmental way.  

New insights, skills and successes developed with the horses transfers to each participant's everyday life. Medicine Horse provides a fun, challenging and unique environment in which human growth, healing and potential may be achieved.

I am so grateful for Medicine Horse ... it's making a big difference in my life. I feel more peace in my day-to-day and thus feel more grounded for whatever experiences come my way. I love feeling the energy of the horses and the relationship they are willing to have with me.

The caregiver program that my Mom & I took part in at Medicine Horse was amazing, healing, and transformative.  Words really cannot describe how it positively impacted our lives.  We will take the wonderful experience forward with us and cherish it forever.  The horses are magical and the caring staff are so kind and extremely helpful!  I hope many more veterans and their loved ones can benefit from this experience!

Horses for Heroes

A full-day (9am to 2pm) workshop designed for first responders and frontline healthcare workers to come together and focus on healing themselves.

This is so much more than just a therapy session or interaction with a therapy animal. It is truly an immersive experience ... I would leave the sessions thinking, "I've got this, I am so much more than cancer!"


Beyond that I realized I was so much more than other things that have held me back. Having this program showed me that I could not only thrive in the face of cancer, but that I could flourish in other parts of my life where I had felt stagnant.
