Serving Native American Communities
Spirit Horse Connection (SHC) promotes the healing of people and communities and supports Native American cultures and spirituality by spreading God’s truth via the ancient spirit horse, prayer and aiding in community outreach and projects.
Take a look at some of the projects we have been able to support with the help of generous donors, such as yourself!
Native Spirit Horses
For centuries, history has claimed that there were no horses in the Americas before the arrival of Europeans. Contrary to this claim, many Native Nations were living in harmony and close connection with their 4-legged horse relatives well before the arrival of those from overseas.
In 2014, our founders, Karen and Chris Quinn, were gifted 4 of these special medicine horses from Basil Braveheart, Lakota elder and keeper of traditional Lakota knowledge.
These horses have strong healing capacity and can help with a variety of physical and spiritual ailments. This differs from standard Equine Assisted Therapy in that it includes prayer and ritual.

Any donations received through Spirit Horse Connection for this effort will go directly toward the care and maintenance of these very special companions.
We regularly receive requests from our contacts in Native America on behalf of elders, parents, and families in need of emergency relief. These requests come for those in need of funds for gasoline, firewood, propane, funeral services, home repair, school expenses, and many other needs.
If you are interested in donating toward these needs, we are accepting donations for this on a regular basis. Simply indicate on your check where you wish for these funds to go, and we will ensure that they get to the right individual or family in need.
In late summer of 2018, storms and tornadoes whipped through the Oglala community on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. More than 450 homes were severely damaged by this natural disaster.
FEMA denied the Oglala Sioux Tribe Emergency Disaster Funds, leaving hundreds of elderly people, families, and small children facing the winter months with broken windows, holes in their walls and ceilings, and the very real possibility of freezing to death.
We are helping to raise emergency funds to seal the broken windows for each of the roughly 450 homes effected by this storm.
