A 501c3 Non-Profit Charity Serving Metro Phoenix and the East Valley


Our Passion

Partnering very special horses and compassionate licensed therapists, mental health professionals and trained Equine Specialists dedicated to providing therapies that can profoundly improve the lives of those living with physical, mental or emotional challenges.
Our equine activities and other nurturing interactions with animals provide a scaffold on which therapists mount a full range of physical, occupational and speech therapies.

Come as you are

Our clients come in all ages from toddlers to seniors. Clients present a wide variety of physical and emotional limitations. We have deliberately chosen not to limit services to individuals with particular disabilities because there is sound evidence that interacting with animals, especially horses, helps both children and adults with many medical and social backgrounds.
