Hope Is Where the Heart Is

Our Approach

Here at Valor Horses we are a trauma-focused treatment center offering traditional therapy and specialized therapy services including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Equine Assisted Therapy. EMDR has been proven to be one of the most effective trauma treatments in Mental Health at this time. 

Our practice specializes in treating active duty military personnel, first responders, intimate partner and domestic violence survivors, and victims of physical sexual assault.


For Equine Therapy we follow the EAGALA model of Equine Assisted Therapy. This unique process allows you to discover the answers within yourself through the help of our certified team. For EAT each team consists of a Licensed Mental Health Professional, a qualified Equine Specialist, and highly attuned horses working together WITH clients to provide opportunities for life-changing outcomes.

Client Testimonial:

" 30 years of trauma had gripped all aspects of my life and I was stuck. I had become fear driven with crippling anxiety and chronic migraines. I was doubtful of EMDR, as a TBI client. To my surprise, I responded very well to the processing. Ken Palmer gave me grace, patience, and understanding as I released the pain I'd been holding. I was never alone. Ken and the partners at Valor were never more than a phone call away. In rapid time, my relationships, wellness and self esteem jumped to a very healthy level. I am no longer stuck. EMDR at Valor has given me the space to heal, tools and the freedom to be true to myself. I am sincerely grateful. Valor has given me my life back."
