MEDICINE HORSE PROGRAM

Image_202111231409

We have a small but mighty volunteer base and we'd like someone to stay in touch with this team to keep them engaged (virtually) and reach out to them on those occasions when we need their support (fundraisers). We also have a team called "Horse Hands" that help us with horse handling in groups. The Horse Hands volunteer team are very horse capable and knowledgeable and we have a multi-step process that they go through to be part of this team.

The right candidate will be proactive through communication, skilled with multiple software platforms and detail oriented. This person will work closely with different parts of our organization to help us grow. We would also like this person to be skilled with their own horse skills/background. No riding is involved but the ability to halter, lead, groom and pick hooves is necessary.

About MEDICINE HORSE PROGRAM

Location:

9143 VALMONT RD, BOULDER, CO 80301, US

Mission Statement

Our Mission We save lives. Healing through the empathic power of the horse. We offer free Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and learning programs to enhance the mental health of children, teens, families, and colleagues.

Description

Founded in 2000, Medicine Horse is a leading provider of free mental health programs to those in our community who need help and wouldn't otherwise have access to equine therapy. We serve veterans, caregivers, women impacted by breast cancer, LGBTQ+ youth, underserved youth, teens in high risk situations, first responders, and more.

Licensed & registered therapists partner with horses to provide powerful experiences that help with things like trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, and depression that have long lasting, positive impact for those who join us. Because horse herds closely resemble the family system, our interactions with horses can lead to awareness of how we relate to ourselves and others. Each horse’s distinct personality may remind you of someone you know, eliciting emotions and behaviors that can be processed in a safe and non-judgmental way.

​New insights, skills, and successes developed with the horses transfers to each participant's everyday life. Medicine Horse Program provides a fun, challenging and unique environment in which human growth, healing and potential may be achieved.
