Equine Assisted Therapies

Stockhands Horses for Healing is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing equine facilitated therapies to veterans, adults and children with developmental, mental, physical, and emotional disabilities.

The Equine Experience: Riding a horse can help riders to find confidence, peace, control, a mental and emotional calm, energy; understanding, purpose, pride, and all the things that can be forgotten when dealing with a mental, physical, or emotional disability. This experience of rediscovery is happening throughout the country in many therapeutic riding programs. Its success is evident in those who are part of or have completed therapeutic riding programs. Because horseback riding is physically; mentally and emotionally taxing, it presents as the perfect opportunity and venue for therapy. The energy and connection between horse and rider is intense and unable to be recreated; it is infectious due to the horses’ loyalty, strength, lack of judgment, and caring.
