2017 Impact100 TC $127,500 Grant Recipient
PEACE Ranch is home to 17 unique rescue horses, most of whom have suffered some sort of abuse or neglect and were difficult to place. These horses act as “therapists,” helping those who also are struggling with the effects of trauma in their own lives. Naturally predisposed to read emotions and body language, horses are non-judgmental. Individuals receiving Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) benefit from increased confidence, mindfulness, connectedness, and more. A multidisciplinary team integrates Art, Music, and EAP in a year-round facility that Impact100 TC grant funds helped complete.
