On this farm, humans, horses help each other heal

The horses and humans at this farm all know what it's like to survive trauma. Now, they're helping each other heal.


A nonprofit horse rescue is giving abused and neglected horses a second chance while offering a therapeutic service to human victims of trauma.

Inspired by how taking care of horses helped her cope with her own personal trauma, Jessica Gonzales hopes the horses at Empowered Equines can help others, too. Her goal is to save the animals and rehabilitate them to become comfortable around humans, as well as give their human caretakers a source of comfort.
