Seen Through Horses Campaign is the first convening campaign of its kind focused on mental health through horses.

“Having horses in my life since I’ve been free has had an amazing impact on my life, especially how I interact with people. They’ve taught me to find the connections that I wasn’t able to make on my own.” - Jaycee Dugard

No other animals have been as influential on human evolution as horses. Horses are adept at sensing emotions and have the ability to connect with humans on a deep level.

“I grew up on a quarter horse ranch. I firmly believe that horses have changed my life and I do believe that they can change anyone’s life that is seeking help.” - Riley Smith

“I think back on all the wonderful experiences I’ve had with our horses and I recognize just how much they have contributed to my happiness, my attitude, my outlook, and especially my growth as it relates to becoming more responsible. If you have the opportunity to get involved with any equine program I would strongly encourage you to do so!" Mikayla Lane, 17
