Engage, Equine Assisted Services is a nonprofit that provides healing and hope to children and adults through the guided interactions with horses. As a horsewoman with lots of years in the saddle, I can personally attest to the transformative power of being around these incredible creatures.
Engage will use some of the horses that come into Legacy's family that are a good fit for the program. Some of the therapeutic work happens only on the ground without riding, which means senior horses or those with non-life threatening injuries that make them unridable get to have a purpose and a happier life as they participate on Engage's team.
It's a win for our rescued and repurposed horses that would otherwise not likely be adopted, and it's a win for Engage to have gentle 'seasoned' horses to help provide healing and hope to individuals dealing with trauma and other issues.
