The mission of Horses Offering Opportunities for the Future, Inc. (HOOF KY) is to connect at-risk, disadvantaged, and trauma-stricken youth to horses and let horses work their magic. Horses have the ability to touch the human spirit in ways not found in other relationships. They can break down emotional walls and barriers of distrust, isolation, and manipulation as the young participants interact with and take stewardship of the horses.
This human-equine interaction teaches respect, responsibility, discipline, and personal empowerment. These attributes prepare our HOOF KY participants to make positive choices that lead to productive and healthy life styles.
