Through workshops and retreats in team building and skills development for organizations of all kinds, Berkshire HorseWorks offers the tools to cope, heal, compete, challenge, communicate, lead, empathize and thrive in today’s stressful world. We bring the amazingly powerful modality of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Learning to the community to help augment, in a new way, the wellness and vitality of one’s own heart, the heart and soul of others, and the heart of our vibrant workforce.
Our herd of rescue horses has been providing life-saving treatment to children and families in the Berkshires since Berkshire HorseWorks was founded.
Now, in the time of Covid19, they need your help to stay healthy and alive, not succumbing to the devastating diseases they’ve been battling since their rescue. Because of the coronavirus, we’ve not been able to see paying clients since January, and thus there’s been no income to provide medication, treatment and food.
We are at a critical juncture and need to raise $11,350, which will sustain the herd until programming is again available.
They’ve been here for you – now they need your help!
Book Now and we will donate one session to an at-risk child or family!
Call (413) 698-3700 or contact us to book your session now!
I cannot begin to tell you how much I learned from you this year. It was my pleasure to work with you, Wendy, and the Boys
I always looked forward to Thursdays, as spending time with the boys was the highlight of my week.
As well as having loads of fun at the site, I also learned a lot about how to a non-profit function, which I had never really fully understood before.
I will greatly miss you, but I’m sure find time to visit soon.
Lots of love.

Dear Berkshire HorseWorks,
Thanks again for making our experience so enjoyable. We had a great time and would love to return in the future. [Everyone] made our visit safe, enjoyable, and memorable.
“Dear Sarah, Hayley and wonderful staff at Berkshirehoreworks,
Great time? Yes, Yes and Yes!! We had absolutely AMAZING time with Dubs and Spirit!
Our kids are 8.5years of age differences and it’s a challenge for us to find the activities that fits both.
Tears in my eyes when I see them smiling at each other!
I can’t remember the last time…
Anyway, we are so happy to experience the power of horses- healing power – of animals. Thank you.
Of course Hayley is an amazing super host. She gave us such a comfortable environment.
We sincerely appreciate all your hard work and dedication.
We’ve been telling about Horse Works to our friends…
Again, thank you so much for the wonderful time.
We’d love to come back when we have the chance.
My best regards,
Tomoji, Yukiko. Masato and Carina Hirakata”
