Who We Are

Founded in 2000, Medicine Horse is a non-profit organization that provides equine-facilitated psychotherapy and learning sessions either free of charge or by donation. Our mission is to use the empathic power of horses to transform lives and promote healing. Our licensed therapists work with therapy horses to provide mental health support to various groups, including underserved and marginalized youth, members of the LGBTQ+ community, veterans, active duty service members, those recovering from substance use, those affected by cancer, and trauma and abuse survivors.

What is Equine Facilitated Therapy?

Equine Facilitated Therapy (EFT) and Learning (EFL) are unique approaches involving experiential therapeutic activities with horses, guided by a licensed therapist. These methodologies are supported by numerous studies showing their efficacy with a variety of populations. Participants in equine-facilitated therapy and learning programs have reported experiencing numerous benefits including reduced symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD, improved self-esteem and self-awareness, better communication, and increased overall wellbeing.
