Horses healing humans
with equine-assisted therapy
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 needs. With a horse’s guidance and support, our Hippotherapy, HorseSense, At-Risk Youth, and Veterans programs are offered by licensed professionals and equine specialists to meet the needs of our community.
To harness the healing power of horses to improve lives.
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.
Thank you for your support!
Without your generous support, Northern Michigan Equine Therapy would not be able to offer the programs to our amazing clients.
The mission of Northern Michigan Equine Therapy is to harness the healing power of horses to improve lives.
