The Healing With Horses Difference

Healing With Horses promotes Equine Assisted Therapy with over 50 years experience in Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy.  Healing With Horses provides the finest programs available. Why? Because we believe every session must be tailored precisely to each individual. We rescue abused and neglected horses to rehabilitate then provide them with specialized training for our equine assisted activities and therapy which provides personalized instruction and guidance for emotionally challenged people.

We have established professional certified instructors experienced in social behavior, equine behavior and therapy, communication skills to help cognitively and emotionally challenged individuals with special needs.  We offer "Healing  With Horses" Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) Therapy in the styles of Dressage, English or Western which includes Equine Safety and General Horse Care. We bring the New World of Horsemanship to YOU. We include Spiritual Healing which inludes Recovery's of all kinds. We promote Equine Assisted Learning and Communication. 

We teach people of all ages and walks of life to learn how to bond and communicate with horses. Our focus is on "Youth at Risk".  We design private sessions for individuals with a team of Professionals working together with our advanced, experienced and Certified  Staff who all offer a variety of unique  equine backgrounds. With the help of our Four-Legged Therapists who are gentle, well mannered and patient.

Equine Assisted Therapy and Activities

Who would benefit from Equine Assisted Therapy?
All humans with the emphasis on an enjoyable and relaxing experience that provides additional therapeutic benefits in the areas of communication, socialization, posture, structure, mobility, and an overall improved quality of life.  Individuals may participate in horse - related activities to their maximum ability in an atmosphere of support, structure and socialization for the primary purpose of the intrinsic enjoyment of the activity.

We have worked with a variety of Public School Systems. We work with Courts for Youth at Risk, Families of Children With Disabilities, Department of Children and Families, Tramautic Brain Injury Association, Wounded Warriors, Veterans Returning Home, United Community Family Services, Waterford Country School and an extensive variety of others.  We have also worked with the Montville Board of Education creating classes for their High School and Middle School Children for our onsite program "The Discovery of Horses".  We have extended ourselves to people in need of Equine Assisted Therapy and Recovery's of any kind. The program for each  participant is customized to the specific objectives tailored to his/her ability. Second only to emphasis on safety is a large dose of fun with a focus for the individual’s needs and functionality.


Our programs extend to all needing help from Anxiety Disorders, Bereavement, Cancer Recovery, Communication Skills, Family Counseling, ADD, Depression, PTSD, TBI, Detachment Disorder, Stress, Pain Management, People In Transition, Cronic Illness, Fibromyalgia and Neuropathy, Domestic Violence including those recovering from Addictions and General Mental Health.

Since antiquity, the horse and human bond has been known for its healing power. Use of the horse in a therapeutic role, from helping wounded veterans regain functionality, to augmenting the development of struggling children, has grown dramatically since the mid-twentieth century. Two principal programs have developed, which may appear similar from a distance, but have different focus.  The process of becoming one of the herd, has us slow down, become more present in time. Horses cues happen within seconds. When humans slow down and calm their breathing, feel from the heart and trust in their bodies communication system, they become at peace with themselves and their environment. One begins to feel connected to the energy of all that is. 

 Horses depend on knowing the emotional state of every member of their herd and they do not judge any emotion as good or bad. The herd is free to tell the truth and deal with their emotions as they arise authentically, responsibly, completely and in the moment. There is no blocking emotions. Horses stay clear and clean which brings them emotional freedom. This again is what we call "One with Horse".

Equine Therapy

Healing With Horses Equine Assisted Therapy 501(c)3 is the "CENTERPIECE" of the services we offer. The gentle, four-legged staff members are remarkable and intuitive.  These social animals can sense the surface of uncertainty as well as deep-seated emotional distress.  In effect, they hold up a mirror in which clients can view themselves. The two-legged staff members then translate and help the clients apply short and long-term changes to find balanced more fulfilling lives. Our programs are based on the belief that our participants needs are of the utmost importance-horses and humans alike. Our entire staff is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. We would welcome the opportunity to deliver the best service in the EAT industry. With a variety of programs to choose from. We will meet and exceed your expectations.
There is enough evidence to prove some of the most insightful therapists eat hay. For decades, a branch of healing known under various names such as Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Equine Assisted Therapy and Equine Self Growth has help troubled, temporarily lost and traumatized children and adults find a sense of well-being, personal balance and happiness. Horses are considered to be empathic. This makes it easier for the horse to interact with the participant and has the ability to read the emotions of the student.  Their calm sentient nature including the ability to be non-judgmental makes the bond between horse and student a whole energy. What we call here at the facility "One With Horse"

Twister at Play (click his photo above)

Ever wonder what happens to abused and neglected horses? Some put them to sleep, others are beaten or starved to death, some are left tied to barns with notes attached as the owners have moved on. Others have been placed alone in dark stalls with no food or water and some turn them over to the unknown with no regrets.  This has happened to many of the horses before arriving here.

Rescues such as ours are run by people with regular jobs. They are hard working and have passion in their hearts who struggle daily to provide food, shelter, medical care, vetting, supplements, farriers, treats and love to these majestic animals. 

The love is the easy part. The work is difficult and the rewards are ongoing and heart felt. Volunteers work from their heart with compassion and kindness. We are reaching out to all of YOU for help. As a 501(c)3 non profit, this facility survives on donaions from regular people that work hard like you do. We need funding and sponsors. We cannot save them all. Together we CAN make a difference.


Shari & Domino "In Loving Memory"

This program directly involves human services. My name is Shari and I am the founder of Healing With Horses. I personally found myself in a horrific near fatal auto accident years ago lifted by life star which left me permantly disabeled, unable to speak, walk and reason due to severa trauma, broken bones, internal injuries and traumatic brain injury. 

I found myself desperate to find ways to cope with my unique situation to allow me to rehabilitate and heal myself in an unconventional way. I met a variety of people along the way different ages from all walks of life. The programs here are very personal to me. Through the use of horses I was provided with self growth, compassion and motivation to get myself through the most difficult time of my entire life through rescuing and rehabilitating horses.
