Exhale Farms takes pride in supporting local heroes. Our ‘Hero Project’ allows us to offer free specialized group sessions for Law Enforcement, Firefighters, Military/Veterans and Medical Personnel.
We want to bring mental help to those in need by showing an alternative route to traditional medicine. Horses have the ability to sense the energy and emotions of humans with non-verbal, readable communication which has been shown to assist with social skills and confidence.
Every Wednesday from 10am – 12pm we provide a FREE First Responder Wellness Horsemanship Group. Group days include:
Donate a vehicle today, running or not. 100% of the proceeds from all vehicle donations goes to support our Hero Project. We try to make the process as stress-free as possible by also providing free towing. You will receive a charitable donation tax receipt, values vary depending on the vehicle’s year, make and condition.
Horses offer unique traits that make them a top choice for animal-assisted wellness programs. Horses have the ability to sense the energy and emotions of humans with non-verbal, readable communication which has been shown to assist with social skills, confidence, stress, anxiety and overall physical and mental wellbeing.
Horses bring a sense of peace, in a non-judgmental way, as they will only react to a human’s behavior and emotions.
Horses are clear observers and very sensitive to movements and emotions. They will often reflect a human’s mood, behavior and emotions, letting you know they understand and are connecting with you allowing you to feel safe and secure.
As people might find themselves feeling vulnerable when talking openly about their feelings, challenges, experiences and just life in general, a horse can offer source for processing the feelings and emotions one might experience.
Wellness comes in many different forms and is unique to each person’s needs and personalities. Horses rely on us to feed them, water them, to exercise and groom them daily. These actions in themselves can bring peace and serenity to the one providing the care. Knowing that you can allow yourself to be vulnerable with these acts of kindness and caring towards the equine not only will help build empathy, but can put a person on a path of healing as well.
Just breathe in and exhale out as you arrive for a peaceful and serene experience. Exhale farms is a unique and exclusive farm for adults and horses to escape, grow, and heal.
