The Healing Power Of Our Horse Power Is On The Move


For those of us who work with horses, we know how amazing this form of connection can be and what it has to offer. It can be equally powerful for individuals working through trauma, many of whom are experiencing disconnection, dysfunction, or toxicity in their lives. We are pleased to announce that Aurora has given us the opportunity to create a safe place for patients to work with horses and receive their therapeutic benefits.

Our New Video!

Horses open our hearts, and heal our souls!

The Pony Express wishes to thank Mike Starkey, head of the Digital Media Program at SRJC, and his team of amazing, talented students for creating our new video. We love it, and hope you do too. Thank you!

a message from The herd



The Pony Express is a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring kids through the use of horses as teachers, healers and agents of change. Our programs teach kids how to build relationships that are grounded in trust, respect, communication, and team work.

In saying yes to a relationship with a 1,000-pound horse, kids learn the importance of establishing boundaries and making good choices that create leadership and life skills that transfer into real life. Horses provide kids with unconditional love and the chance to experience healthy, positive attachments that encourage and allow for transformational change to occur within a safe and healing environment.


Your investment in The Pony Express is more than just a donation. By contributing to The Pony Express, you’re changing lives that will in turn change the world. Your investment also provides much-needed help to horses so that they can survive and thrive as teachers and healers to the kids in our community.

The Pony Express is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Your donations are tax-deductible. Please help us to continue to make a difference in the lives of kids and horses in need. Thank you!


Hannah, an aspiring equine professional, has been in our program for three years. Here she will share with you her expertise on horsemanship. As you will see, Hannah is a natural born teacher and passionate horse lover!
