Thank You For Joining The Equine Partnership Program! 

You’re Making a Difference 

Can you picture, for a moment, a young person with autism discussing hardships with a trusted equine partner? A person living with dementia recalling a fond memory while brushing a horse? Magical experiences like these are happening at the Equine Partnership Program every day. But it is only possible with support like yours!

The Equine Partnership Program is a non-profit organization based in Parker, Colorado. We offer mental health services incorporating horses to individuals of all ages. We take traditional therapy sessions out of the office and bring them into the barn. We are passionate about what we do because everyday we see the incredible power that utilizing horses has in the healing process for our clients. And how much of an impact the hands-on experiences with our horses has on improving our client’s quality of life.  

We proudly offer life changing therapies to many diverse populations in need. 

  • Adolescents living with Autism Spectrum Disorders attend our School-Based Life Skills program. 
  • Aging adults experiencing cognitive decline, and their caregivers, participate in hands-on equine assisted learning in our Equine Elders program. 
  • Children, adults and families receive crucial mental health therapies at their time of greatest need in our Psychotherapy program.
  • Misfit horses are given an otherwise silenced voice and the opportunity to find a job that they love as therapy partners.

Please consider making a contribution to support the incredible programs at the Equine Partnership Program. Every donation made to EPP will go towards supporting our therapies, clients and the wonderful horses who give their all in sessions everyday.  We are dedicated to making a difference for as many individuals as we can reach, but we cannot do it alone. No amount is too small. You don't have to make a huge gesture to make a huge impact for our organization.

We are grateful for the investment you make in us to carry out the mission of EPP. And together we can change lives. 

We thank you in advance for your generosity.


We assist our clients on their personal journey toward healing with hands-on equine assisted therapy.

Background Statement

Equine Partnership Program (EPP) was founded on September 26, 2006 by Lee Dudley. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Lee saw that therapy provided solely in an office setting wasn’t yielding positive results or emotionally corrective experiences for the clients she saw - specifically those who have a history of trauma. Lee created EPP to serve clients who were looking for an effective, experiential, creative form of therapy.
