Horses Spirits Healing, Inc. (HSHI) is a nonprofit organization funded by the generosity of local individual and corporate donors to help disabled veterans find the ability to heal through equine therapy.

With the backing of veteran-honoring donors, equine therapists partner with military veterans suffering from psychological trauma and physical disabilities. The HSHI program is structured to offer all veterans the opportunity to connect with horses regardless of their experience.

Some veterans may find it calming to simply groom a horse, while others may enjoy the horse’s gentle gait or rehabilitate through physical activities like moving hay bales.

It is the simple, non-judgmental interaction between veteran and horse that helps alleviate wounds, both seen and unseen.
