Horses as Healers

A Therapeutic Program for Patients Who Have Completed Cancer Treatment

Horses as Healers is an extraordinary healing program for those who have completed cancer treatment. Patients learn to groom, tack up, and ride horses under the guidance of Miwok Stable’s equestrian staff and trained volunteers. Each person learns new horsemanship skills and works at his or her own pace, interacting with one of eight especially gentle therapy horses. Participants report that the time is extremely relaxing and rewarding. Many participants benefit from the incredible emotional healing power of horses in one of Marin’s most beautiful outdoor settings.
