Hope’s Promise is an organization that specializes in Equine Therapy programs. Animal-assisted therapy, including equine therapy, can increase motivation and offer hope to people, which can promote healing.  Horses have the ability to emotionally, physically and spiritually enrich our lives, particularly to those who have a need for comfort and unconditional support. Horses have a calming effect that benefits people with heart disease, chronic illness, anxiety disorders and so much more. The Hope’s Promise horses are trained to go inside buildings, in elevators, and even in bedrooms if individuals are bed-ridden.
