We are an outpatient rehabilitation facility using equine assisted therapy and the natural movement and demeanor of a horse to help with physical, emotional, and mental challenges.
Northern Michigan Equine THerapy
Northern Michigan Equine Therapy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to equine assisted therapy using the healing nature of a horse as a therapeutic tool to enhance independence, self-confidence, and quality of life. With a horse’s guidance and support, our hippotherapy, Horse Sense, at-risk youth and Veterans programs are offered by licensed professionals and equine specialists to provide the community with the best quality of service to those in need.
Horses Healing Humans In Many Ways
Conquering goals is important to Northern Michigan Equine Therapy and we’ve seen many overcome over the years. Our first bright star was a young lady who made great strides overcoming a neurological disorder where changes in textures were intolerable. On her first session of hippotherapy (equine assisted therapy) she ran from the concrete aisle way onto grass without concern. Then there is Zander. This rock star has Pitt Hopkins Syndrome and was told he would never walk. After his fifth session Zander walked from “Adele” (therapy horse) to his mother’s waiting arms for the first time (not a dry eye in the place). It was his fifth birthday too.

“I was crying. I couldn’t believe he had actually done it, they said he never would.”
This form of occupational, physical, and speech therapy uses a horse as the therapeutic tool. This strategy uses a horse’s presence and movements as the primary way to achieve functional goals.
HorseSense, NMET’s equine assisted program, utilizes the qualities of a horse while providing the education and confidence needed to feel comfortable around one of these powerfully majestic animals.
NMET believes a horse’s unconditional love provides honest feedback to the client. This feedback provides essential skills to build effective relationships with the horse and outside our facility.
Equine Assisted Therapy is a powerful way to help our Veterans find their own internal controls to manage both visible and invisible wounds they endure during combat.
