The Inspiring Equine Society (IES) is an Alberta charity, whose goal is to improve the health and well-being of adults, youth, and identified at-risk youth, who are experiencing mental health challenges and may be in financial need, through the use of EFW programs. Funds raised through the charity go toward sponsoring youth, adults and identified at-risk youth,  to be able to participate in the various equine facilitated personal growth and healing programs that are offered throughout the year. 

Through building a relationship with a horse in the program experiences, individuals learn more about themselves as well acquire skills to navigate life more positively and successfully.
