Our Mission

Horses and humans working together to foster healthier communities.

At Medicine Horse it’s all about horses helping people and people helping horses. It’s about developing relationships with some amazing animals and discovering your best self.

In our work, we constantly witness how horses nurture, inspire and heal a person’s spirit, mind and body. Whether you want to become more assertive, see your child gain confidence and increase their pro social skills, or you would like to increase your mobility and balance, our family of equine assisted therapy and growth and learning programs has a place for you.
