Horses & Humans Research Foundation Seeks Equine Assisted Activities/Therapies Research Proposals
The Horses and Humans Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization that seeks to facilitate universal understanding and appreciation of the significant influence of horses on humans. The foundation’s primary goal is to support, promote, and fund scientific research that explores the claimed yet unsubstantiated benefits of equine assisted activities, leading to the discovery of the most effective methods and techniques for conducting thousands of existing and future programs. A secondary goal is to educate the public on research findings so that equine-assisted activities become more accessible to those in need.
The foundation invites proposals to investigate the therapeutic effects of horses on humans. The foundation’s broad research agenda includes basic research as well as clinical studies that will ultimately impact physical and mental health and the quality of life for people with disabilities who are involved with equine-assisted activities/therapies.
Preference will be given to investigators with solid credentials and research experience who are associated with institutions located in either the United States or Canada. Grants are generally awarded for a maximum of $50,000 per year each.
Interested researchers may contact the foundation for information on therapeutic riding programs to approach for possible collaborations.
Program guidelines and materials for applicants are available at the Horses and Humans Research Foundation Web site.
