Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our Mission is to provide Professional Equine Assisted Counseling & Education for all in need regardless of ability to pay.
The ministry of Peach Ranch is to relieve the suffering of people who have experienced trauma. We do this with horses who have also experienced trauma and have been rehabilitated. The Bottom Up therapy model used at Peace Ranch is a trust based model, similar to how we bring traumatized horses along and is effective to address the effects of acute trauma including those from abuse, neglect, and exposure to violence, and war. This parallel process is unlike office based therapy. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy therapy harnesses the motivation of the client to connect with the horse in an outdoor, sensory rich setting, aided by a team of professionals who facilitate the journey toward healing. Clients often experience a considerable increase in hope within one or two sessions. In 10 years helping people with acute trauma including severely traumatized kids and combat veterans, no client has ever been lost to suicide.
