Our non-riding approach puts clients and horses on equal footing where horse and human work as partners in healing. Safety is a top priority, so our clients can comfortably explore new thoughts and ideas while recognizing patterns and reactions that may no longer be productive. Through developing connections with our horses, and guided by our experienced facilitating team, clients take away lessons they can apply to “life outside the paddock’.

Our Core Principles

 
  • Treat each client, and each horse, as a unique individual with specific needs

  • Offer a safe peaceful space where growth and healing may occur

  • Provide opportunities for clients to experience true partnership with our horses

  • Create a community of mutual healing, benefit, respect and compassion

 

Why horses?

The calming presence of horses, coupled with their keen ability to sense and respond to human emotion and intention, provides an ideal environment for self-discovery, healing and personal growth.

Project Horse is dedicated to improving the quality of life for humans, and for horses, creating a unique community of mutual healing and benefit.

As a therapist who continues to work with at-risk, trauma exposed, and emotionally disturbed children, there is no therapeutic setting I have experienced that is more naturally suited for building resilience in this population, and no staff that I can more highly recommend.
