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.

Won’t you give this boy a good home? Copper is a bit older and quite thin, but he has a lot of life left to live. He needs a lot of TLC and a diet to get him back in shape.  Copper needs a home to live out the rest of his years grazing and getting love from his human companions and equines too! 

Newly arrived at 13 Hands, CoCo is quite timid and is still getting adjusted to her new surroundings and the humans who are caring for her.  She can be seen peeking from behind the shed at times and tentatively getting to know her neighboring equines.  She and her gal pal Northern Star are pasture mates and came to us as a pair.  We don’t know a lot about her at this time, other than she needs a lot of TLC.
