Horse Sense

Equine 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.

Gold Braid is a beautiful Standardbred and her best friend is Glory, a young mule. Glory is young and needs training to become more comfortable with human interactions. They are looking for a home together as companions.  
Silver is a small cremello pony.  He and his bonded pasture mate, Tidbit, are looking for a special home. Tidbit is a palomino mini. They need a patient approach and someone who wants to change the life of these two companions. They are extremely timid and need special consistent attention to move on to the next phase in their lives.  Silver is less cautious than Tidbit but both need groundwork and a natural horsemanship approach. Are you looking to build a special relationship through trust building exercises?
