As equestrians know, the human-horse relationship can be incredibly transformative and healing. The Equine Networ­­­k, producer of magazines such as Practical Horseman, EQUUS, and Horse&Rider, is proud to bring you Hope in the Saddle, a program devoted entirely to highlighting the power of the horse to help and heal humans. The Equine Network is excited to announce Cargill Incorporated’s Nutrena equine feed and Tractor Supply Company as program sponsors.

Horses have an amazing ability to rehabilitate the human body and soul. They allow us to walk again by letting us ride on their backs. They teach us to be tolerant of others and ourselves as they accept us into their herd. They help us overcome our fears by offering love without limits. They sense our emotions and provide comfort in times of need. Most of all, they bring us Hope in the Saddle.

“Anyone who has spent time around horses understands the immensely positive impact they have on us, physically, psychologically, and emotionally,” says Hope in the Saddle program manager Lauren Feldman. “Through engaging articles, videos, and social channels—and the support of Nutrena and Tractor Supply—Hope in the Saddle celebrates some of the most meaningful and important stories to emerge from the equestrian world—stories of how our relationships with horses can help us overcome life’s toughest challenges.”

Nutrena feeds and Tractor Supply Company joined forces with the Equine Network to bring you Hope in the Saddle as a showcase of the many stories of hope and healing that horses bring to humans. From battles with cancer and PTSD to the first steps on the path toward rehabilitation, horses are there for us. Share your story and read those of others at
