Horse Power for Life horse

Horse Power for Life is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in Glenmoore, PA that provides an educational and therapeutic horsemanship program for cancer patients and survivors of all ages and their families. Our goal is to help families living with cancer focus on their minds, bodies and souls, rather than the disease while learning about horses in an atmosphere of professionalism, teamwork and fun. The students learn all aspects of horse care, along with riding. The weekly lessons are 90 minutes long and are customized for each individual based on age, experience, comfort level, health and physical ability.  Since cancer diagnoses often affects more than just the person diagnosed, we invite and encourage one family member to join with the cancer patient/survivor.
