In an effort to help with the healing process of children, families, first responders and communities affected by the Newtown, CT. tragedy, Zoar Ridge Stables (Sandy Hook, CT.) and the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA), have come together to offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy free of charge to those in need.


“The sessions were fun and incredibly insightful. We were able to confront issues that came up calmly and even in a spirit of fun including the horses. I highly recommend this program to any person whether they are dealing with extreme trauma or not...”
- Scarlett Lewis
“I’ve learned that horses naturally assist both children and adults in overcoming fear, grief and difficult challenges that we face in our lives. ...Embrace Hope isn’t just made up of people who are qualified professionals. It’s made up of people who truly care.”
- Declan Procaccttini
