Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
SHRC provides equine programs to facilitate growth and healing through self-actualization and awareness resulting in healthier lives. The populations we serve include special needs children and adults, veterans, and individuals in recovery from addictions. Our mission is to transform lives with unbridled possibilities through the healing art of the equine.

Director Johnny Higginson uses his 48 years of equine experience to carefully select each horse for the therapy team to ensure a safe and profound rider experience. With the 14 horses in our program providing therapy to approximately 70 riders per week, SHRC believes that therapeutic horsemanship is capable of creating healing within the hearts, minds and bodies of children and adults. From a child with Down syndrome, to an adult with a spinal cord injury, to a teenager with autism, therapeutic horsemanship has increasingly been shown to provide numerous physical, emotional and mental benefits.
