Grants from the Horses & Humans Research Foundation

  1. Marcy Wilhelm-South

    The Horses & Humans Research Foundation recently awarded a $50,000 research grant to study the effects of equine-facilitated psychotherapy on young men with PTSD. The study is being led by Megan Mueller of the Cummings School with Leslie McCullough of Washburn University also contributing. They’ll be measuring PTSD symptoms throughout an EFP and traditional therapy program with 60 boys who range in age from 10 to 18.

    Earlier this year, HHRF also gave a $50,000 grant to the University of Missouri’s Research Center for Human Animal Interaction to investigate the effects of therapeutic riding on military veterans with PTSD or TBI.

    You can find more information on the the HHRF web page.
