Hello!

Horses Guiding Humans is a equine assisted therapy program with strong ties in the veteran community and childhood development. Hosted at Four Star Farm, a children’s riding program helps support the non profit, and often sees children progress from the therapy program to the joy of riding as a hobby and passion.
We are seeking volunteers to support our 30 beautiful horses on our 10 acre grounds for farm chores such as feeding, stall cleaning, general farm chores, grounds maintenance, and for more experienced volunteers handling, grooming, and exercise.

No experience needed, we can work with your schedule!

We will be very happy to hear from you, and thank you for being interested in volunteering!

Mission Statement

Equine services encourages skills of patience, self-confidence, trust, and compassion. Groups, individuals, couples and families learn by directly working with a horse. Participants use feelings, behaviors, and patterns to better understand the horse and themselves. Horses use body language and often mirror the emotions and behaviors of the participants that surround them. We choose activities to help each person come to important insights and learn new skills. Everyone is given the opportunity to discuss feelings, behaviors, and patterns they noticed during the activity. We also discuss how these elements may be found in other areas of their lives. Non-verbal communication, problem solving, boundary setting, leadership, confidence, and relationships are all common themes.
