We would like to introduce you to "The Medicine Horse Project" organization located in Somerset, California.  

The Medicine Horse Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of displaced, abandoned or slaughter bound horses.  Because we understand the incredible healing power these animals hold, our mission has a focus on healing not only horses but humans as well. We partner rescued horses with humans seeking healing, empowerment and resilience.

It is an incredible partnership when you introduce a horse that had been given up on by  people to a human who has maybe given up on themselves.  If breeds hope, healing and recovery.

My husband and myself took over the operations and programs of the Caliente based organization early last year.  Moving into 2018, we have a new Board of Directors and we are charging forward in building our programs and moving the headquarters fully to Somerset.

This past year, we have rescued 7 horses, adopted out 3 horses and offered many horsemanship workshops, women's empowerment retreats as well as at risk youth outreach.
