The vision of Horses of Hope Oregon is to provide opportunities for participants to find health, happiness, and healing through horses. To do this each of our programs are designed to address the individual needs of each participant whether that is cognitive, physical, emotional, or behavioral. We meet the challenges of those with but not limited to, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, PTSD, autism, and ADHD. Participants of all ages benefit from the movement and innate behavior of the horse to connect with people and reflect their emotions back to them. Equine Assisted Services help to develop strength and balance, flexibility, confidence, problem solving, and empowerment.
Interactions with horses help people gain independence and self-esteem. We strive to find what each person is capable of and tailor each session to the participant’s goals. Horseback riding is linked to cognitive and emotional benefits and physical improvements in balance, motor skills, sensory integration, and muscle strength.
Horses of Hope Is a place that we look forward to every week. Our daughter benefits both physically and emotionally. She loves seeing Ella and the other horses and the riding is great for her posture and muscle tone. We are so impressed with how organized and professional everything is run and the staff has always been amazing! They make sure everything is done in a safe manner and have a great attitude reinforcing the positive with our daughter. You can tell that the volunteers really have a passion for what they are doing. Keep up the great work!
