Mane Support is a nonprofit organization that provides a ministry through equine-assisted grief counseling to children, youth, teens, and adults who have experienced a death, who are anticipating the death of someone they know or who have experienced other types of trauma.
Mane Support is located in Blount County with services offered to the surrounding areas, nationally and internationally.
The connection that the horse has
to healing is a true journey, not a destination.
Much like that of the grieving process,
that is just what is says, a process not an event.
All of the activities are conducted on the ground; there is no riding. In addition to individual and group sessions, Mane Support also offers community education, volunteer training, and corporate team building seminars.
The therapists and equine specialists of Mane Support are certified through EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association). In addition, experience, degrees, and certifications are held in the fields of equine training and management, child development, and thanatology (the academic study of death among humans).
