Rescue & Recovery

Our mission is to educate and foster healing and greater self awareness by:

  1. Caring for, and training with, our family of horses who have an empathetic gift for healing humans, through both our Volunteer Caregiver Program and our Horse Interaction Program.
  2.  Partnering horses with humans to heal our U.S. military personnel who are reintegrating back into their civilian lives and who may also be diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, through our Equine Assisted Experiential Health Therapy (EAT) programs. Our EAT programs also include couples and/or family sessions for military families to address family based issues which have arisen since their loved ones have returned from overseas duty.
  3. Educating the general public on the interactive mirroring that takes place naturally between horses and humans, through our equine based programs as well as our website and blogging efforts.
