The Hoofbeat | July 2022

Lovingly referred to as "1,000-pound therapists," Hearts' herd plays an influential role in Hearts' therapeutic work. Whether being ridden or participating in groundwork, horses have a way of connecting with participants that makes the individual feel GOOD.

Hearts' 16 equine partners have the extraordinary responsibility of providing a safe and stable environment where participants can build strength, mobility, and flexibility: often where other more traditional therapies have proven unsuccessful. Participants also feel empowered and have greater self-esteem after working with horses.
