Horses Spirits Healing Inc. (HSHI) in Billings, MT was established in 2014 as a 501(c)3 by the owners of the Intermountain Equestrian Center to expand their scope of equine sports and education to include Equestrian Assisted Activities and Therapy (EAAT) for returning military personnel. The organization services Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming by helping to heal vets who are suffering from psychological trauma and physical disabilities. In February 2016, the nonprofit will begin providing equine-assisted activities and therapy to veterans. All of the instructors are students or graduates of Rocky Mountain College's equestrian studies program. For more information, visit the Horses Spirits Healing, Inc. website.
