Project Horse provides custom-tailored equine assisted mental health services to individuals of nearly any age who are facing emotional, behavioral or cognitive challenges. We offer a unique and engaging way to deliver help and support — every participant works in partnership with one or more of our therapy horses. This “work” is done on the ground, where both horse and participant are on equal footing. This non-riding approach boosts self-esteem and builds confidence, and ultimately empowers a participant to heal and grow. Since 2008, we have supported the mental health needs of thousands of children, teens, adults and families.
