Mane Support is a nonprofit organization that provides a ministry through equine-assisted grief counseling to children, youth, teens, and adults who have experienced a death, who are anticipating the death of someone they know or who have experienced other types of trauma. Mane Support is located in Blount County with services offered to the surrounding areas, nationally and internationally. The connection that the horse has to healing is a true journey, not a destination.
