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.
In starting our mission, we are already rescuing, adopting and rehoming horses which relies on your donations for all of the costs associated with animal rescue, sheltering and care. We are still in the process of becoming 501(c)3 approved to be 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!
Right now we are functioning mostly as an owner surrender site. As we become larger, we would like to be able to attend auctions and work more with animal control for neglect cases. While that is getting going and becoming successful, we will also be working on getting certified to become an Equine Assisted Therapy site though our owner/founder has been certified as an Equine Specialist. We are now just in need of a Mental Health professional who is willing to go through the EAGALA certification process(www.eagala.org).
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.
