Horses & Humans Research Foundation 2007 Call for Proposals

Equine assisted activities/therapies research proposals are due June 30

Chagrin Falls, OH - March 20, 2007 Horses and Humans Research Foundation (HHRF) invites proposals to investigate the therapeutic effects of horses on humans. The Foundation's 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.

Preference will be given to investigators with solid credentials and research experience who are associated with institutions located in the US or Canada. Grants are generally awarded for a maximum of $50,000 per year.

Programs providing equine assisted activities are expanding in our country and internationally at exceptionally high rates. Thousands of programs exist to serve people with disabilities by providing therapy, enhancing well being, developing life skills and extending educational opportunities all through partnerships with horses. This programming accounts for over $77 million in budgets, 40,000+ participants and 26,000+ volunteers annually, and represents only a portion of the programs operating nationally and internationally. Interested researchers may contact the foundation for information on therapeutic riding programs to approach for possible collaborations.

Horses and Humans Research Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. For more information on supporting this research or becoming a donor contact KC Henry, Executive Director (contact information below).
