The Barnabas Horse Foundation was founded in 2012, to provide equine assisted therapy in a safe environment for individuals recovering from trauma and abuse. Their focus is to support and encourage participants seeking emotional growth, self-respect, and the courage to move forward with their lives.

Horses have long been a source of healing. They symbolize strength, yet are very nurturing and intuitive to the needs and emotions of those who enter their lives. Through a structured, interactive participant-horse relationship, the children, women, and veterans at Barnabas will have the opportunity to grow into confident, trusting individuals.

All proceeds from the Texas Scramble will be used to help the Barnabas Foundation continue to provide free equine-assisted therapy for children, women in crisis, and veterans.

For more information on the Barnabas Horse Foundation, please contact Susan McKinney, Founder/President at 843-241-3331, or visit the website at www.BarnabasHorse.org.
