"When you see a bunch of humans standing in a herd of horses”

About Us

Creating a unique bond that lasts a life time

The Colorado Therapy Horses is a ‘staff’ of trained Warmblood horses and humans that ‘Heal the Hearts of emotionally hurting humans like veterans with PTSD and their families, adult and child cancer survivors, underserved and at risk youth, kids and adults with special needs, broken child and family relationships and all other kinds of ‘Wounded Humans’ such as those with alcohol and drug addiction and sexual, physical and emotional abuse survivors.

The centerpiece of the program happens when the participants engage in a unique non-riding Equine Therapy called “Natural Humanship Training”, which was developed by our founder Richard C. McMahan, MA, NHTIII, CACIII with 35 years and tens of thousands of hours of experience. Human Interpersonal Services (HIS, Inc.) is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable foundation dedicated to serving people that other agencies are reluctant to serve. Fees are on a sliding scale by donation only. We pride ourselves by having on one paid employee, our barn manager and rely totally on volunteers including the founder, CEO and Clinical Director. All support goes to care for our staff of 18 “Foundation War Horses.”
