Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Horses Healing Humans exists to help heal people with physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges through Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy conducted by caring, credentialed professionals, protecting both the physical and emotional safety of all clients.

We serve individuals with physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges between the ages of 3 and 83, after careful screening by staff for eligibility. The screening process determines whether program activities will be safe and appropriate for the individual and which resources (Volunteers, horse, equipment, etc.) will be necessary. Once accepted into the program, individual goals are determined and progress documented weekly. Most participants will have a 30-60 minute lesson once or twice weekly for the duration of a 10 week semester, and most will continue from one semester to the next. Activities may include mounted and un-mounted work incorporating riding skills, psychotherapy, games, IEP support, and trail riding.

Signature programs at Horses Healing Humans are W.I.T.’s End (Women in Transition) and Equine Services for Heroes (US Veterans/ Wounded Warriors) as well as traditional TR, EFP and EAL programs for children and adults. We work with Stonington Institute, DCF, DDS, Stonington, East Lyme, and Waterford Country Day Schools and are working on additional program through area agencies.
