Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga (THS), seeks to support racehorses in leading a peaceful, safe and meaningful life by rescuing, retraining and utilizing retired racehorses in therapeutic programs.
Our mission is to prevent retired racehorses, both Standardbred and Thoroughbred, from encountering abuse, neglect and slaughter.
THS therapeutic horses are given a second purpose in life by serving as a source of support for some of the most vulnerable individuals in our community. This includes adults and children with mental illness, veterans, victims of domestic violence and other populations in need of care. The THS horses partner with licensed mental health therapists to provide Equine-Assisted Therapy Services.
About Equine-Assisted Therapy
Equine-assisted therapy uses the diverse personalities and calming effects of horses as a means of helping clients work through their own emotional challenges. There is no riding involved in equine-assisted therapy, and no prior horse knowledge is required.
