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 truthand 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".
I have been asked if horses can help heal cancer.

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"

Ever wonder what happens to abused and neglected horses? Some
put them to sleep others beat or starve 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.
such as ours are run by people with regular jobs, 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 but 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

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 auto accident in 1994 which left me permantly disabeled, unable to speak, walk
and reason due to severe 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 the rescuing of horses.
Along with our counselors, mentors, certified instructors we are able to provide personalized
programs with our horses providing security, compassionand acceptance to meet their particular need. The horse human bond
has been known for its healing powerfor many centuries.
The use of the horse is now in a therapeutic role, from helping wounded veterans regain functionality, to augmenting the development
of struggling youth. 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.
