Healing Journey Program
The Healin’ Journey is a program based on experiential horse activities that are designed to nurture emotional growth and healing from trauma and is offered to American veterans, 1st responders and others with PTSD, TBI, MST, anxiety, depression and suicidal idealization.
Equine Therapeutic Programs (ETPs) are supervised by professional equestrian instructors who teach wounded veterans and others of need, how to interact, react, and care for a horse, all at no cost.

The activities are guided by a staff that includes a therapist, a horse professional and life skills staff. Because of the experiential aspect, changes in behavior and increased insight for the participants often arise quickly and have a lasting transferable effect. Participants learn about themselves and others by participating in gentling rescued wild horses, and then processing feelings, behaviors, and patterns.
There are many equine therapy programs that are helping the Participants through domestic horse activities including, feeding and grooming, riding, and partnership training, however, The Healin’ Journey Program has the added advantage of utilizing the process of gentling wild horses making first contact and spiritually connecting with a dynamic and powerful living being.
This program is funded by donations from individuals, corporations and foundations.
