Hugs for Horses operates out of Georgetown, SC. They use current and former show horses to provide equine therapy. The riders they see face various physical, mental, and social disabilities, and they come in all ages and sizes. Hugs for Horses provides stimulation for those who need it. It’s a chance for those riders to have fun on a horse.
And the staff at Hugs for Horses will tell you, it’s a chance to receive therapy without even realizing it. They say that it’s the therapy that doesn’t feel like therapy. Watching a class, it’s easy to see what they mean.
