Mission Statement

To apply the power of equine therapy to improve the physical, mental, emotional and social quality of life for the Pittsburgh region's children, youth, and adults with physical and behavioral health.


Horses with Hope is a discovery, growth, and learning center that can be used as a resource for numerous populations in and around the Pittsburgh and Washington communities. Horses with Hope offers equine therapy programs for individuals that are physically challenged, have intellectual disabilities, challenging behaviors, and/or may need additional social and emotional support. Our programs focus on improving the lives of children, youth and adults in many different ways. The partnership with the horse allows participants to reach beyond their abilities, allowing goals and milestones to be achieved.

Financial support directly impacts Horses with Hope as all donations go into the program. Our future goals include providing participants the opportunity to ride free of charge and expanding the program to more individuals.
