Meet Our Horses
Horses are the heroes of our program. These amazing creatures that take our breath away with their beauty and bring peace to our souls with their presence are perfectly designed as a service animal. The healing relationship between the horse and the human is a magnificent sight to behold. The horse's ability to carry us, their warmth and body movement, ability to respond immediately to our movements, and their keen perception to mirror our emotions makes them the perfectly designed therapeutic partner. Equine assisted services uses the movement of the horse to create muscle and sensory stimulation that brings about physical, emotional and cognitive rehabilitation. The rhythmic, repetitive gait of the horse is similar to the human gait and gives the experience of normal walking movement in the rider. Riding the horse brings a sense of freedom many of our riders are not able to experience any other way. In addition, our horses provide a non-judgmental relationship, accepting individuals for who they are regardless of physical, emotional or social abilities.
Savannah Station is committed to helping both the rider and the horse by rescuing horses for this higher calling whenever possible. Horses with the patience and temperament to be a therapeutic program horse are highly valued. Each horse in the Savannah Station program has earned their spot as a reliable and safe member of the healing team. We do look for new horses to join our program as the need arises.
