Horses and Humans Research Foundation (HHRF)
The purpose of Horses and Humans Research Foundation (HHRF) is to fund research that investigates the therapeutic effects of horses on humans. The 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 (EAA/T). 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.
Horses and Humans Research Foundation serves as a catalyst to advance global knowledge of horse-human interactions and their impact on health and wellness.
