Helping those with physical or mental disabilities by restoring strength when traditional therapy is not helping enough.
Our therapeutic horseback riding program benefits riders to strengthen and build upon their cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well-being. It builds riders to boost their confidence, improve motor planning, gain a sense of independence, and self-awareness. While encouraging to grow in their listening skills to follow direction as they learn to strengthen their balance, posture, and range of motion.
Horseback riding simulates a three dimensional movement which is the same as someone walking. As the horse moves it encourages riders to learn how to balance, shift their weight and maintain their equilibrium.
Equine Liberty Therapy
For Individuals, Caregivers & Veterans of all ages deal with depression and PTSD. Helping to find inner peace by spending quality time with gentle horses.
In our Equine Liberty program clients learn to develop partnerships with their horse through exercises as simple as haltering, leading, and grooming. Through our collaboration with Leslie Nichols we also provide different activities to get the horse to work alongside the client that teaches a new way of being with the horse emulating how horses work with one another. Equine Liberty is the collective awareness of being in the power of now or present and acknowledging the body language between the client and the horse they partner up with.
Through work and play the client and their horse learn to come together as they tune into one another’s presence in a calm, quiet, and relaxed atmosphere with the only expectation for the client is to get their horse’s attention.

About Our Equine Therapy Facility in Glendale AZ
With an acre quarter pasture, three horses, and the events leading to her daughter getting out of a wheelchair and walking on her own two feet, Annette Lennon founded the Non-profit organization in 2002 in hopes of helping other children and adults alike regain their strength and heal their spirit. Today, we are working on expanding our facility as we continue to dedicate ourselves in helping others achieve physical strength and inner peace through equine therapy and therapeutic riding.
Back in 2015 we collaborated with Leslie Nichols who is a horse trainer and the creator of Equine Liberty Sports, which is a step by step on line teaching program that implements innovative ways in connecting to your horse with little to no equipment and working with them in their natural environment. Alongside the rest of the board members “Equine Liberty Therapy” was created as a program to bring a mindfully collective experience to veterans needing to regain a since of peace and freedom.
Our experiential equine healing programs encourages self discovery, mindfulness, and confidence building in our clients. As the positive experiences with the horses accumulates, it is our intention that the joy and hopefulness transfers into other areas of our client’s lives.
