Jane began her lifelong love of horses as a competitive rider. When she left the world of traditional horsemanship behind, she had no idea that horses would ever become an integral part of her life again. It was not until she began to study the principles and practices of natural horsemanship that she came to understand what horses had to teach us about how we come across to others, about being in the moment and how to bring out the best in ourselves.
To provide veterans and others in high-stress situations with essential tools to meet life’s challenges and build healthy relationships through purposeful engagement with horses.
Our first obligation is to serve those who have and are now serving us. We developed this curriculum for veterans and first responders who know what it is like to be prepared for situations that can change without warning. All of our programs for these brave men and women are offered at no cost to them.
Veterans have already raised their hands and said that they would be willing to give their lives to protect us. We at The Equus Effect, believe that it is our responsibility to protect them and others who put themselves in harm’s way, to do all we can to support them as they return from military service or from emergencies that can happen on a daily basis. We do this through the generosity of donors, foundations, as well as through fee-based programs for individuals who are interested in personal and professional growth. See Attention & Energy page.
A country where veterans have the opportunity to enjoy the physical, mental and emotional freedom they were willing to give their lives to protect.
We never charge veterans for our services.
Our sincere desire is to give those who want to return to their communities and live satisfying and productive lives ‘a leg up’ through our four-week curriculum.
We rely on the generosity of people who want to see these brave men and women go from surviving to thriving.
We also do our part to ensure the sustainability of our flagship program. Providing individuals in transition, recovering from physical, mental and emotional conditions and diseases — as well as well as people looking for personal and professional growth — with tools that restore goodness to their bodies, minds and spirits through adaptations of our curriculum.
No horse experience necessary. No riding involved.
