Clinical Services at Hold Your Horses

Pricing and Services

At Hold Your Horses we offer therapy services and programming that explores the healing outcomes offered by partnership with the horse and time in the natural environment. We welcome people to experience the peaceful environment of our 69 acre farm and recognize that there is no replicating this opportunity in a clinic or classroom setting.

Please know that we do not bill insurance companies for clinical services at this time. We offer direct pay options and also accept waiver payments. Clients may choose to self-submit claims to their insurance provider for out of network, outpatient services but should discuss terms with their provider before the start of services. HYH can directly invoice most fiscal intermediaries for waiver funding with approval from case manager prior to start of services. Thanks to our generous donors, a sliding fee scale is available to all clients upon request.



Occupational Therapy Services:

Occupational Therapy (OT) Services at Hold Your Horses specialize in hippotherapy. Hippotherapy is the purposeful manipulation of equine movement as a therapy tool to engage sensory, neuromotor and cognitive systems in order to promote functional outcomes. During sessions an occupational therapist along with a therapy aide and horse handler facilitate equine movement and client positioning and offer a variety of purposeful activities to help the client achieve goals outlined in their plan of care. Depending on client goals, sessions may also include unmounted activities working with a horse or exploring the sensory rich environment of the farm. Hourly sessions are held weekly and one episode of care may run 10 to 12 weeks in order to meet short term goals.

• Initial screening $45
• Evaluation $180
• Sessions $180 per hour


Mental Health Services:

Hold Your Horses offers mental health services that partner with equines (horses and donkeys). Clients will participate in equine activities such as leading, grooming and observing horse behaviors in conjunction with a variety of counseling techniques provided by a licensed practitioner. During each session a horse handler may be present to provide additional support for client safety. This therapy is beneficial for mindfulness skills, self-regulation, communication strategies and moving forward from trauma.

Individual therapy Fees:

  • Initial intake $160
  • Hourly sessions (non mounted) $145
  • Hourly co-therapy sessions (non mounted or mounted) $235: these sessions are up to the discretion of the treating clinician and include an occupational therapist to support the mind-body connection.

Group Therapy: HYH offers group therapy for community partners. Our combined therapy model brings together the expertise from Occupational Therapy and Mental Health professionals to meet specific needs and goals.
