We are very excited to announce
the launch of our special design
t-shirt fundraising event!

Support Between Horses and Humans in style!. Available for purchase now you can choose from 'The Horse in the Heart' design or 'Life Lessons from Horses'.

All profits from the sale of this apparel will go to support our very special program. Apparel from t-shirts to hoodies with our limited edition design can be purchased through a special store set up through Bonfire. Orders and deliveries will be handled through this site.

Between Horses and Humans has been changing lives and healing hearts since 2009. “Lives Changed, Hearts Healed” has been our tagline and is truly what our hope is for each child that enters our program.

While BHH is not therapy, we use the rehabilitative powers of horses to teach vulnerable kids successful relationship skills and mental/emotional resilience. This was the inspiration for the design of this special t-shirt with the horse in the heart.

Many thanks to one of our amazing volunteers, and board member, Laura Maffitt who designed these wonderful logos. Laura said she was inspired by the horses and humans she works with at BHH. We are inspired by you Laura!!

How BHH helps our students...
Marilyn is on the autism spectrum. She has been coming to BHH for about a year because she was getting bullied at school and struggling with life. She loves animals and especially the horses at BHH. She was telling me today how she is so much happier and confident now and believes in herself. She has dreams of becoming a veterinarian and working with animals some day. Doing ground work with rascal helps to build her leadership, focus, connection, and communication skills.
A story from one of our volunteers..
"The two siblings had never touched a horse before, and didn’t know much at all about them. It was the 9 year old's birthday . He apparently had been reluctant to come, didn't want to etc.. but when he arrived and was working with Doc, he repeated `this is so fun!’ Several times. When I told him that since its his birthday he could sit on Doc at the end of the lesson- he was SOO excited. Even though he was masked, I could see in his eyes, and his voice how moved he was to sit on an actual horse. It was so precious to be a part of that moment! I said," I bet you will never forget your 9th birthday!” He said ` NEVER!”  OH, and he told me he was taking a `part of Doc’ home- he showed me a tiny little wisp of Docs hair in his hand! So sweet! So, before he left, we got a ziploc baggie and got a lot more hair off Doc for his baggie. ...Love this `job’!"
