NWESC Friends – it is with great honor and profound gratitude we announce that the DJ&T Foundation has just provided us with funding to support our Gelding Clinic Program … for ONE WHOLE YEAR!!
With the DJ&T Foundation’s help we will be able to prevent potentially hundreds of unwanted equines, provide innumerable humane teaching/training opportunities for vet students/technicians/assistants, offer low-cost gelding surgery to communities in need, and work with extraordinary veterinarians in our region … ultimately bringing ‘the village’ together to create impactful, tangible change … through 2017!
A HUGE thank you to the DJ&T Foundation, it’s Founder and President, Mr. Bob Barker, and everyone who supports and believes in our mission. We are able and privileged to serve because of YOU.

Announcing: An Exciting and NEW NWESC Program & Manager!
In line with our progressive expansion and development goals, NWESC is thrilled to announce the initiation of our NEW Equine Facilitated Mental Health and Learning Program (EFMHL). Once complete, the EFMHL Program will provide interactive opportunities of growth, learning, and therapy for groups and individuals in the Upper Puget Sound region. Its programs will combine equine-human interactions with counseling-based processing skills to introduce new awareness, improved emotional control, and transformation, while uniquely considering the equine health and well-being at the same time.
Amy Schilder comes to NWESC with 25 years in experiential educational programming. She also brings a combination of dynamic experience in nonprofit management and in equine-facilitated methods of therapy. She is certified by the Professional Association for Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) as an Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning (ESMHL), Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA), and by the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA).
Our new EFMHL program will complement NWESC’s efforts to promote wellness and stewardship through mutually respectful relationships and reverence – changing the lives of horses and people forever. Amy will be a tremendous asset to the creation and management of this program, and we are very excited make this program announcement and welcome her to our team!
