From the outside, Healing With Horses looks like little more than a dedicated equestrian's home. You might see children getting what look like simple riding lessons on one of our beloved horses. Hidden from casual view is the vital work that Wild Rose Horse Farm performs every day to reconnect at risk and developmentally disabled youth with themselves, their families, schools and communities.
The positive impact of Horses and animals on the human spirit have been well documented and the specific therapeutic effect on disabled persons from interacting with horses has spurred a number of venerable organizations. We classify equine assisted therapy as a positive effect on the lives of people with Cancer, PTSD, TBI, ADD, Autism and more as indisputable.
Our campaign is called Domino's Healing Effect in honor of our beloved Domino Effect, our first therapeutic horse we lost on February 14, 2012.
Help us realize our vision of creating a cutting edge therapy facility by supporting our Campaign to upgrade our facilities and programs. With your support, Wild Rose Farm will be an incomparable community resource for families, a refuge for at risk children from negative and unhealthful influences, and one that allows disabled individuals to learn self-reliance.
We are unable to complete our facility makeover without YOUR HELP. Please Donate!
Our Domino's Healing Effect Campaign welcomes every level of individual and group donations to fund any of our facility needs we are identifying, from riding equipment, paddock upgrades, fencing, greeting rooms picnic and arts and craft areas, to a sensory trail.
Every donation will help us more effectively provide our equine assisted therapy programs.
Ever wonder what happens to unwanted and abused horses? Some put them to sleep others beat or starve them to death, some are left tied to barns with notes attached as the owners have just moved on. Others have been placed alone in dark stalls with no food or water and some turn them over to the unknown with no regrets. This has happened to many of the horses before arriving here. Rescues such as ours are run by people with regular jobs and passion in their hearts who struggle daily to provide food, shelter, medical care, vetting, supplements, farriers, treats and love to these majestic animals.
The love is the easy part. The work is difficult but the rewards are ongoing and heart felt. Volunteers work from their heart with compassion and kindness. We are not able to do this alone. We are reaching out to all of YOU for help. As a 501(c)3 non profit, this facility survives on donations from regular people that work hard like you do. We need funding and sponsors. We cannot save them all. Together we CAN make a difference. Please consider helping.
