Our therapy horses are retired and/or rescued horses with different life experiences and personalities. Each client will be paired with a therapy horse (or horses) selected for him or her after an interview with our counselor. No experience with horses is necessary. All counseling is done “on the ground” under the supervision of the counselor and a horse specialist.
We are a family-owned, 501(c)(3) organization committed to setting the standard in mental health counseling using horses as the main facilitating tool. Opening Gates provides mental health counseling (individual, family and group) and academic learning programs (reading and math) to the community. A Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Teacher are on staff.
We offer counseling services for individuals, families, and groups. We also offer learning programs for school or business groups. Find out more about our wide variety of programs and how our horses help so many in so many different ways.
