Helping with Horsepower is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization that designs volunteer programs that empower, encourage, and raise funds for worthy charities.  Helping with Horsepower has developed several programs that have shown proven results, including the Helping with Horsepower Horse Program.

Helping With Horsepower ™ Volunteer Application  

Helping With Horsepower ™ Scholarship Application

Helping With Horsepower ™ Client Application

The mission of the HWH Horse Program is to assist individuals with special needs in reaching their full potential through interaction with horses.  Through and amazing partnership with Crystal Young of Reclamation-Ranch and Noreen Young of Life's Trail, HWH was able to launch this program summer of 2015!

Clients come for one-hour sessions each week, with a designated horse and instructor.  We have a strong focus on building independence, and clients assist, to the best of their ability in all areas of preparation and horse-care:  leading, grooming, putting on and removing equipment before and after their ride.  This develops a sense of self-sufficiency and accomplishment and also builds sequencing and speech skills.

Instructors, during the mounted portion, lead the client through the Horse 88-step Equine-Assisted Healthcare Program.  This program utilizes movements and activities on the horse to develop rhythm and balance, and stimulates brain activity that actually works as effective intervention for the deficits of disabilities.  Equine therapy aides in many ways.  In a natural environment, Horse equine-assisted therapy is an organic combination of speech, physical and relationship-building therapy.

This therapy builds a variety of skills:


  • Balance & Coordination
  • Flexibility & Core Muscle Strength
  • Sequencing
  • Speech & Communication
  • Self-Esteem & Self-Confidence

Our goals include addressing each rider's individual needs and achieve the goals, his or her parents, contributing therapists and doctors and HWH Horse instructors set.  As clients move through the 88-step Equine-Assisted healthcare Program, progress is measured according to the mastery of these steps.  Because we serve such a wide range of age and physical and cognitive functioning ability, success is measured in the individual accomplishments and milestones of each. General success, however is measured by the clients' improvement in different areas affected by disabilities.  These include improvement in balance, coordination, muscle strength and flexibility, self-confidence, independence and progress in environments outside our center - home, school, etc.

We are now accepting applications for the 2017 riding season!  Please contact us to receive the application and get on our list!.  Therapeutic riding sessions are held at the Reclamation-Ranch location from May through October.

After months of preparation, the second season of the Helping With Horsepower, Horse Therapeutic Riding Program is in full swing;  The HWH staff is excited to welcome new clients and volunteers.

LillyWe are so thankful for our riders, their families, and our volunteers who continue to help us fulfill our dream.  Our goal through this program is to "assist individuals with special needs in achieving their full potential through interaction with horses". - Laura Klock

On Sunday, April 24, 2016, Helping with Horsepower invited riding families, volunteers and supporters to Reclamation-Ranch for new client and volunteer orientation.  With just over 30 attendees, HWH Staff walked through safety procedures, a complete client session demonstration and answered questions about the Helping With Horsepower Horse Therapeutic Riding Program at Reclamation-Ranch.  The group heard from a current client, Quintin, who rode at the center last summer and his mom gave a heartfelt testimony at the end of the presentation.  Attendees met the horses, were given a safety lesson about working with horses, and also the option of walking through the new trail at the ranch that will be used during the riding program.Laura 1x

It was amazing to hold our first "official" Orientation, as so much work has gone into preparation and planning for our riding season to start!  One of the moms spoke up at the event, tearfully and talked about how much the riding has impacted her son's life.  moments like that really help us feel the depth of our program at Reclamation-Ranch.  It was a GREAT day! - Laura Klock
