The Bridge United Methodist Church to Host Grand Opening for its New Equine Program

Horses and healing make for an amazing combination!

Come see for yourself as The Bridge United Methodist Church (The Bridge) hosts a grand
opening celebration for its new equine assisted therapeutic activities program on February 10th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Dubbed The Healing Post, this is a special spot where horses and humans come together to form connections and help individuals recover from past hurts. Those suffering from the effects of physical and/or emotional abuse or health issues experience the powerful positivity of this program.

The Bridge has collaborated with Envision Therapeutic Horsemanship, a local nonprofit organization that facilitates partnerships between these majestic animals and people in need of some extra love and hope.  Envision brings horses and humans to the Healing Post, where they participate in a variety of therapeutic activities and build relationships with one another.

The community is invited to join in the fun at the grand celebration and witness how this incredible program makes a difference. Guests will get an inside look at how this program has a positive impact on the lives of children and adults who have experienced abuse, abandonment, homelessness and trauma.

“It’s very rewarding. We’ve already seen lives changed and people empowered through it, and that’s exactly the kind of thing we were looking for,” Russ Perry of The Bridge said.

The event will be held onsite at the church (4900 E. Thomas Road) and there will be fun for the entire family! The lineup of activities includes face painting, arts and crafts, and photos with the horses. Visitors will also get to try some of the therapeutic activities like painting the horses and horse snuggles, although limited space is available and signup is required.

“We are excited to be able to offer such life changing services for the community of the central city!” says Lisa Pewe, Executive Director of Envision Therapeutic Horsemanship, Inc.
