Our Trauma Support Equine Program uses the healing power of horses to support the emotional wellness of children, adults and families who have experienced trauma.
We began a new trauma support equine program in 2022 called RideStrong, which invites survivors who havebeen affected by suicide, cancer and other crises to experience the healing benefits of equine-assisted services.
Mental health after trauma is an ongoing concern for everyone affected. Equine-assisted services can help families and friends come together in the wake of loss, and help cancer survivors and those affected by other illnesses or crises cope with their diagnosis and treatment.
