With every print that is sold a donation is given to support a therapy horse and therapeutic riding services to children and adults with physical, cognitive, sensory, learning disabilities, as well as serving veterans with adjustment challenges.
Why Horses in Therapy? Unlike smaller therapy animals like dogs and cats, these gentle giants have a calming effect that’s magnified by their size and empathy. Horses are herd animals known for attuning themselves to human emotion, often reflecting the behaviors of those around them. For people building confidence, learning to care for an animal that is larger then them can help improve self-esteem, encourage taking control, and addresses fears they feel are bigger than them. Equine services include physical and occupational therapy, equine facilitated counseling, therapeutic riding and horsemanship and so much more!
Hero is a retired police horse that has found his new purpose in life serving children with special needs and veterans with adjustment challenges. Hero loves apples and kisses on his muzzle. This gentle giant has been a therapy horse for 6 years. Equustory supports Hero and the therapy services he provides to individuals with various physical and emotional needs.
Hannah is a vibrant and joyful 6 year old little girl. When Hannah began equine assisted therapy a year and half ago she was unable to walk, had difficulty sitting up unassisted, and could not raise her arms above her head. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Hannah was confined to a wheelchair and had not made much progress with conventional therapies. Six months after beginning equine therapy Hannah was high fiving her sidewalkers and was able to sit up in the saddle unassisted. Today Hannah is out of her wheelchair and learning to walk on her own. Her mother said "Hannah comes to life when she is around horses. They have given her confidence mentally and built her strength physically. It is because of equine therapy that Hannah is able to walk and she is becoming more independent everyday! I am forever grateful to these horses and this program that has given my Hannah a new purpose in life!"
