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

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

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

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

Our organization operates programs involved with horses and other animals.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Hearts & Horses mission is to promote the physical, cognitive, emotional and social well-being of people with special needs through equine assisted activities and therapies.

Hearts & Horses is a well-respected PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center with an outstanding record serving those with physical, mental and emotional needs since 1997. From youth at risk, to individuals with Alzheimer's, to children with Autism, Hearts & Horses impacts every life we touch.

In all of our programs, the horse is viewed as a therapy partner, teaching our young riders valuable lessons in communication, teamwork, respect, trust, and independence. Our four-legged therapists act as gentle teachers in this "hands on," experiential learning environment, providing an abundance of love, respect, and patience to an often fragile and vulnerable population.
