A Grazing Grace provides a therapeutic rehabilitation between people and horses. By rescuing and adopting horses, we can assess whether they can be used as one of our therapy team members or found loving homes.
At A Grazing Grace, we rescue, rehabilitate and retrain horses which relies on your donations for all of the costs associated with animal rescue, sheltering, care and training. We obtained out 501(c)3 status in May 2015 and are able to accept donations as a tax deductible contributions. We are hoping to solely rely on contributions for the care of the horses that will be rescued and used in our therapy team.
Please help us to make this equine therapy and horse rescue possible by making a small gift to our programs. Your donation is tax deductible and greatly appreciated!
We are currently functioning as an owner surrender site as opposed to going to auctions. Our therapy program is also just starting and we are very excited!
Equine assisted therapy is the discipline of using horses as a means to provide symbolic experiences in order to promote emotional growth. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) incorporates horses experientially for mental and behavioral health therapy and personal development. It is a collaborative effort between a licensed therapist and a horse professional working with the clients and horses to address treatment goals. The focus of EAP is not riding or horsemanship. The focus of EAP involves setting up ground activities involving the horses which will require the client or group to apply certain skills. Non-verbal communication, creative thinking and problem-solving, leadership, work, taking responsibility, teamwork and relationships, confidence, and attitude are several examples of the tools utilized and developed by EAP.
At A Grazing Grace, our hope is to use many of the rescued horses as possible to be part of our therapy team.
