Horses with H.E.A.R.T., Inc.
"Since 1993, Horses with H.E.A.R.T. has served those with disabilities in Yavapai County, Arizona. In 2008, we provided 236 individuals of all ages with a therapeutic equine experience – grooming, leading and/or riding. This was made possible by 218 volunteers, 15 specially-trained equines and12 Directors on the Board.
Horses with H.E.A.R.T. is temporarily located at the Five-M Ranch at 764 W. Road 1 South in Chino Valley. Our kind hosts, Larry & Lydia Powell are allowing us to continue our programs while we raise funds to purchase a permanent facility. Can you help us? Please visit our Capital Campaign page for more information.
We invite you to become involved or support our 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the place where disabilities become possibilities. These possibilities include an autistic child unclenching his fist for the first time in order to pet his horse; a paraplegic who is finally able to hoist herself onto a horse; and a non-verbal child talking for the first time – giving his horse the command to “walk-on”. These are profound moments all caused by the therapeutic relationship between the horse and rider."
