Horses Healing Humans
All of us at Lifesavers have had our lives enriched and improved by our relationships with horses. Our HIGH (Horse Inspired Growth and Healing) and HIP (Horse Inspired Psychotherapy) programs partner our rescued horses with youth and adults struggling from the effects of trauma. Through experiential education and activities, HIGH and HIP provide opportunities to increase the positive effects of healthy relationships both with horses and humans. We also offer programs for at-risk youth. We have both Native and non-Native programs available.
“I don’t know what you did out there but the experience our Homeboys and Homegirls had at your ranch was life changing for them. I have never seen such quick and deep change in our participants. We need to keep this going and make it a weekly part of our program.”
Hector Verdugo, Associate Executive Director of Homeboy Industries
We have partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project to offer our Wild Horse Warrior Weekends. Veterans suffering from physical and/or mental wounds spend four days at our ranch for a weekend of healing with horses. Under the caring supervision of wild horse clinicians and therapists, the veterans stay in our cozy bunkhouses and start the gentling process with their own chosen wild horse.
In addition to our HIGH, HIP, and veterans programs we also offer programs for Leadership, Corporate Team Building and Self-Empowerment.
