Horses and Humans Research Foundation Join us on Facebook!


The purpose of Horses and Humans Research Foundation (HHRF) funded research is to investigate the therapeutic effects of horses on humans. The broad research agenda includes basic research as well as clinical studies that will ultimately impact the physical and mental health and quality of life for people with disabilities who are involved with equine-assisted activities/therapies (EAA/T).

Grant opportunities and CFP deadlines are subject to change in 2012 as new HHRF research strategies are implemented. Further notices will be posted as it is available. For questions contact:
