There are an estimated 200,000 unwanted horses in the US. Tragically, many are slaughtered. Instead, these horses can be rescued & rehabilitated. Many can be re-trained as therapy horses to help serve the more than 50 million people with disabilities. One in 88 children lives with Autism. One in 4 veterans have PTSD. Our challenge is to make equine therapy available to more people.
This project saves the lives of unwanted horses, rehabilitates neglected horses and places trained horses in therapy programs that need their support. Though equine therapy is recognized as an effective alternative to traditional therapy, it is only available to a small percentage of people with special needs. As more people become aware of the success of equine therapy, trained service horses will be in demand more than ever. This will help reduce the unwanted horse population.
Our goal is to ensure the proper care and use of horses, and for as many people as possible to benefit from their unique ability to empower, teach, and heal. Can you make a horse smile? You bet you can! Support the life-changing work that horses do every day!
