OUR MISSION:
To empower, strengthen, and support individuals and their families facing physical and neurodiverse challenges through horse-related activities.
OUR VISION:
To positively change lives by harnessing the power of people and horses.
WHO WE SERVE
Our primary beneficiaries are those with physical, cognitive, emotional and social challenges. We are hopeful to broaden our definition to include other groups of individuals that can benefit from our services.
WHERE WE OPERATE
We are currently operating in Salem, Oregon at West Hills Stables, an interim facility, as we build our own arena at a recently purchased property. We are creating a network of partners throughout the Willamette Valley to bring healing to our communities.
