Children and adults of all ages are accepted into the program and are allowed to participate to their full ability. While some of the participants are too sick to actually ride a horse, they find hope and joy in brushing or feeding or even just sitting on a bale of hay and talking to a horse. Those participants who are strong enough to ride are allowed to progress at their own speed and level. This may mean a child on a horse with someone leading him and a side walker on each side, or it may mean an adult having a private lesson on a horse who they are riding all by themselves. Some of the participants choose not to ride at all, they prefer to groom and lead horses, even show in-hand. Regardless of the participant's individual capabilities, they are allowed to explore, learn and find what makes them happy in the barn, even if that means bonding with a cat who happens to wander by. After all, LifeHorse is about finding something to LIVE for, not just about a horse. The support of individuals and corporations make the program possible, it is through donations, child sponsorships, horse sponsorships and grants that the program exists.

​As a result of lessons, poise, posture, strength, and flexibility improve. Classes, horse shows, and events encourage self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment as new levels of expertise and self challenges are met.
