Organization Information

Mission Statement

We facilitate the healing of both mustangs and survivors of trauma (and others) through the principles of Mindfulness, Empathy, Nurturing, and Dignity. Participants learn basic horse handling skills and then move through a process of gentling a wild mustang so that it will be best equipped to adapt to its new life in a human world. Participants will work closely with a mentor-trainer and process successes and difficulties throughout the gentling process. Both survivors and mustangs will learn how to heal and create connection to the world around them as a way of coping with previous trauma. Mustangs MEND believes that both horse and human will come out on the other side of this process with positive coping mechanisms and a new sense of leadership and healing.
