Empowered Equines is a 501(c)3 located in York, ME. We are a program for survivors of trauma to rehab rescued horses with the use of positive reinforcement training.
We currently provide sanctuary for 8 horses (5 drafts, 2 ponies and a blind mini), 2 donkeys, 2 sheep, 3 ferrets and 2 cats. All of the animals come from a variety of life threatening situations and are overcoming the emotional trauma that comes with neglect or abuse. We have a wonderful team of students and volunteers ranging from kids to adults. Both the animals and the humans are provided with a mutual therapuetic experience. With the study of learning theory and neuroscience we are able to better understand ourselves, our interactions with our peers, and our animal friends. Learning ethical ways to work with animals teaches a number of life skills, responsibility and empathy to people of all ages.
