Project Horse Empowerment Center About Us

What We Do

Therapy & Mental Health Services

We provide therapy services for individuals, families and groups. For those already seeing a therapist or psychiatrist, our clinicians will collaborate to meet treatment goals. Partnering with horses in therapy is extremely effective for a variety of challenges including:

  • PTSD and trauma recovery
  • depression and anxiety 
  • eating disorders
  • substance abuse
  • self harm
  • emotional and behavioral modification
  • attachment disorders
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
  • ADD, AD/HD
  • selective mutism
  • assertiveness and boundary setting
  • social skills / peer relations
  • family reunification and reintegration
  • transitioning to civilian life (for warriors and their families)

Wellness Programs

Horses are very effective coaches and teachers, helping facilitate personal growth and change in a fun, engaging way. Our programs, tailored to specific ages, cover a variety of themes such as:

  • mindfulness
  • parenting support
  • summer camps and after school programs for kids and teens
  • navigating transitions
  • teamwork & leadership
  • customized programs for clinicians and counselors

Community Outreach

We created the Mobile Minis™ outreach program in 2013 to reduce barriers that limit access to our unique services. The Mobile Minis™ program gets our miniature service horses out into the community, working with groups such as special education students at local schools, residents of group homes and shelters, or court-involved youth in treatment programs. Not only does our Mobile Minis™ program build awareness of the power of equine therapy and learning, but it also provides services to a variety of groups that would otherwise not have access.

Our highly regarded Mobile Minis™ School Enrichment Program provides our innovative services to students with special needs, including intellectual and developmental delays, cognitive impairments and emotional disabilities. We work with various functioning levels of special ed classes, on school grounds during school hours, and are able to provide both outdoor and indoor programming. Our mini service horses help students improve interpersonal skills, increase self-confidence and foster a sense of well-being.
