Horse Sense

Therapy Program

We are committed to help humans and horses alike, and we believe in the powerful effect of mutual healing through the human-horse relationship. This scientifically proven therapy model is based on the unique qualities of the horse to sense and react to human emotions.

The horses’ way of reacting to our emotions and body language is always immediate, honest, non-judgmental and benevolent.

It’s been about six months and CoCo has finally joined a herd.  Her rehabilitation continues as she learns life among the herd.  CoCo has branched out and become social with several of her pasture mates.  Northern Star joined her as well, and it’s comforting to see that they can enjoy the company of other equines besides themselves.  CoCo will need training to gain the trust of humans.  She has not been ridden during her time at 13 Hands, but she is sound.

This young, beautiful mare is ready for her forever home.  Lady has changed so much since she arrived pregnant and scared.  She gave birth to a beautiful colt last year, and now she is part of a dynamic herd.  Lady has warmed up quite a bit and can be seen greeting visitors in the paddock.  She’s still cautious and still needs a lot of TLC.
