Horses Help Continues to Provide Equine Assisted Activities & Therapies

horses-help-in-cave-creek-az-august-2016-41Horses Help began its charity work and equine assistance for therapeutic activities as far back as 1989 with eight horses along with numerous riders and volunteers. As their calling expanded, along with improvement and development, they found newer larger locations to carry on their work. Finally, in 1999, they were able to purchase and develop a 5-acre piece of land that is now home to more than 18 horses with a covered arena that services riders year round.
