Equine Welfare Network Messenger

We are a 2017 Messenger!

We are proud to be an EQUUS Foundation Messenger and share our horse care & use practices with the public.

The Messenger Designation is awarded annually. To retain an existing EQUUS Foundation Messenger designation and apply for an EQUUS Foundation grant in 2017, organizations must provide all required information and update their Messenger information on or after January 1, 2017 and not later than April 30, 2017.

Messengers are organizations on the Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency and accountability by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their operations.

Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is not directly responsible for the care of horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Connected Horse offers human-horse connection and engagement programs, research, tools and products that encourage and support individuals living with dementia diagnoses, care partners and professionals.

We are focused on offering equine guided research and workshops that support people affected by dementia.

Horse-related programs:
We provided Equine Guided Engagement Programs for people living with dementia and their care partners. Currently we are providing workshops and pilot research at UC Davis Center for Equine Health.

Non-horse-related programs:
