We transform the lives of people in Central Florida through horses.

Crossroads Corral is a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving youth, veterans, women and families in Central Florida. Our mission is to promote personal growth, hope and healing through horses. Unlike therapeutic riding organizations, we focus on improving the mental health of those we work with through experiential activities structured to accomplish therapy or learning objectives.

When you think about wild horses, they must be constantly aware of their surroundings for their survival. Horses are aware of the slightest movement and they respond to threatening body language, which makes them a great learning “tool”. Horses can easily tell the difference between nervous, anxious energy and calm non-threatening energy, which allows them to identify individuals who may be struggling internally.

Horses are beautiful, intelligent and majestic animals. They are simply born with the gift to help humans!

“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man”. – Winston Churchill
