We are optimally located just 20 min south of Reno and 10 min north of Carson off I-580. For over 10 years our staff of Qualified Mental Health Associates (QMHA) have worked with a variety of therapists/agencies/organizations to help them serve their clients. Our program is designed to compliment, enhance and support the work being done by the licensed therapist, agency and treatment team. The therapist, psychiatrist or agency set the long-term treatment goals and we translate these goals into interactions with horses. We invite you to come out and take a tour. We will show you around, introduce our herd and share the ways in which we can help you provide this powerful and unique intervention to your clients/patients.
