Freedom Horse Farm, Inc. rescues horses trapped in situations of abuse, neglect or overpopulation. We provide the horses with proper food and care for the remainder of their lives. Or, if suitable, train and rehome them. Horses who have the most appropriate aptitude will be used as therapy horses. A select few remain in a rigorous training program and we use them as dressage competition horses to represent the company and show that given the opportunity, rescue horses can make incredible partners.
Freedom Horse provides mental health therapy for families and individuals. Our therapists listen to and help people understand how to empower themselves. Utilizing interaction with horses, we facilitate people in letting go and learning the skills necessary to live their lives with self-confidence and freedom.
Leading theorists in dressage and psychology share in the mission of freedom:
"The purpose of psychotherapy is to set people free."
- Rollo May, Freedom and Destiny, p.19
"Your aids needs to be effective yet allow the horse to feel free. Freedom is the goal."
- Beth Baumbert, When Two Spines Align: Dressage Dynamics, p.77
