Looking for a weekend outing the whole family can enjoy? Head to the Healing Post at the Bridge United Methodist Church in Phoenix for a grand opening celebration you don’t want to miss.
The Bridge has partnered with Envision Therapeutic Horsemanship to create the Healing Post, a safe place where humans and horses come together to form powerful bonds. The local nonprofit organization facilitates the amazing combination of horses and healing, benefitting people who are in need of some extra love and hope. Here, those suffering from the lasting effects of physical and/or emotional abuse or health issues experience the powerful positivity of this program.
Now, their efforts to give back to the community will be on full display at the grand opening, set for Saturday, Feb. 10th. From 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, members of the public are invited to join in the fun and see what the Healing Post and Envision are all about!
Community members will witness firsthand how this program has an impact on the lives of children and adults who have survived 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.
Attendees will have a lot to enjoy during Saturday’s event at the Healing Post, located at the church (4900 E. Thomas Road). 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.
Please keep in mind that closed toe shoes will be required for horse interaction.
