Therapy & Mental Health Services
Project Horse provides custom equine assisted therapy services to
No prior horse experience is necessary, and the sessions do not include any riding. Activities and interactions occur "on the ground" where the benefit of the horse as therapist-partner is the most powerful. Unhealthy patterns and behaviors are uncovered in the paddock, and new skills and thought patterns can be put into practice in a safe, nurturing environment. The horses provide thought-provoking, instant feedback and are always "in the moment". Therapy services may be eligible for reimbursement. Learn more on our FAQ page.
