Hold Your HorsesMoving lives forward from trauma and disability with the help of a horse
Hold Your Horses offers equine assisted services in a private farm setting. We are dedicated to providing effective interventions that help clients achieve wellness and increase quality of life. Year round services are available with heated indoor and scenic outdoor facilities. A professional therapy team and trained equine partners provide opportunities for skill development both on and off the horse. Individuals with physical, cognitive or sensory impairments can benefit from the engaging treatment strategy of hippotherapy or equine facilitated psychotherapy.
