Chinook Horses provides opportunities for participants to engage, learn and thrive

Welcome to Chinook Horses

We're happy you found your way here. At Chinook Horses in Billings Montana, we have a passion and belief that horses are remarkable creatures and make amazing partners in healing and improving people’s lives. You don’t have to be a horse enthusiast to benefit from interacting with these noble beings.

We provide opportunities for individuals and families to engage, learn, and thrive outside of the classroom and traditional therapeutic environments by practicing equine-facilitated activities and psychotherapy, regardless of their ability to pay. 

We also have programs for your small business, organization or group.

EQUINE FACILITATED LEARNING

or EFL covers a variety of social and emotional learning activities organized around horse experiences. Horses can be a powerful stimulus to help achieve personal goals, build self-esteem and confidence, and improve social skills, decision making, and communication.

Testimonials

"He is not embarrassed of being in therapy, he readily brags to his friends he is doing equine therapy!"

"My son is no longer having panic attacks and doesn’t need the medications that seemed like the only available solution before we found Chinook Horses."

"It’s back to basics. He’s learning skills like breathing and communication. He’s back to wanting to talk, and to hugging. This is how I got my son back."

"It is very empowering to see a group connecting with each other; while bringing healing by partnering with a horse. This couldn’t be replicated in an office setting."
