"Horses Healing the Human Heart"
The Colorado Therapy Horses is a ‘staff’ of trained Warm- Blood horses and humans that ‘Heal the Hearts’ of hurting humans like Wounded Warriors, Vets and their families, PTSD, Victims of various kinds of trauma, broken child and family relationships and all other kinds of 'Wounded Humans' such as those with alcohol and drug addictions, cancer and sexual abuse survivors. The centerpiece of the program happens when the participants engage in a unique Equine Therapy called “Natural Humanship Training”, which was developed by our founder, Richard McMahan, MA, CRC, CACIII with 34 years and tens of thousands of hours of experience.
Human Interpersonal Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable foundation dedicated to serving people that other agencies are reluctant to serve. Also we rescue Warmblood horses from the show world that need to learn a new career.

What is “Natural Humanship Training?”
How effective have the current trends in therapy been in reducing the high recidivism rates? Natural Humanship Training is a form of equine facilitated psychotherapy that allows the human to heal through interaction with the horse. Work with the horses, teaches effective communication skills, builds confidence & self- empowerment, and encourages leadership without relying on intimidation. These tools and knowledge transfer to personal life situations.
We have a goal of 3,000+ humans to meet the horses in 2015!
In 2014 by Richard & Judy McMahan donated the herd of 16 therapy horse staff to Human Interpersonal Services, Inc., with the goal of continued service of "healing the hearts of humans" in Northern Colorado.
How is this program different from other equine-facilitated therapy programs?
Though there are several similar equine-facilitated therapy and therapeutic riding programs, this particular program is one of the few that integrates “natural” horsemanship principals. Natural horsemanship encourages willing communication between horse and human through numerous ground and riding exercises, creating a partnership based on Respect, Trust, Love, and Communication.
Humanship is a 8 week program, 1-3 hours per day, it is worth $50 per hour, per person. We have never charged a single person a 'dime' and our services are totally FREE!
