The SOUL Harbour Ranch Animal Therapy Program is Barrington's premier animal-assisted interventions program that requires testing and registration of our handlers and our miniature equine (horses and donkeys) with Pet Partners, the "gold standard" of animal-assisted therapy.
Pet Partners is the only nationally recognized organization that registers therapy equine with 40 years of experience and research. Their rigorous and comprehensive training period (minimum handling for at least 6 months), testing and registration process before ever being "official therapy teams" (teams are re-tested ever every 2 years) ensures that we abide by the pinnacle of safety, integrity and professionalism.
Our mission is enrich lives by promoting the unconditional love and healing of the human-animal bond while advocating for animal therapy standards of excellence.
