Healing Hearts with Horses

Licensed under

Category Organizations

Healing Hearts with Horses is a 501(c)3 non-profit, Christian based organization working with foster, adoptive, and at-risk children and youth in association with Horse Heaven Rescue. We offer services and programs including Learning Lessons, EAGALA certified Equine Assisted Psychotherapy sessions, and other equine therapies. The "Horse Heaven Rescue" side of our operation is responsible for rescuing horses, typically through owner surrender or "donation". These horses are rehabilitated and retrained before being available for adoption. Our goal is to find the best possible match between horse and rider and place them in a forever home.
