Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $50,000 to USA, Canada, and International teams at research institutions for basic research and clinical studies to explore the benefits of equine therapy. Funding is intended to support studies that will impact the mental and physical health and the quality of life of individuals with disabilities who are involved with Equine Assisted Services.

The primary goal is to support, promote and fund scientific research that explores the benefits of Equine Assisted Services, leading to the discovery of the most effective methods and techniques for conducting best practices in thousands of existing and future programs. The secondary goal is to educate the public (including parents, donors, insurance companies and physicians) on research findings so that equine-assisted activities become more accessible.

Basic research collects foundational data used to develop or refine theories. Clinical or applied research tests theories that direct practice or have a direct effect on the persons in the activity or therapy. HHRF exists to fund and support research projects that measure quantitative or qualitative evidence for Equine Assisted Services. 

The strongest proposals will fully and clearly cover all information and research requested, incorporate project intent and methodology, anticipate issues that may arise and are exceptionally easy to follow from processes to activities and results.
