How do horses play a role in our Equine Assisted and Educational Programs?
This is a unique form of growth and learning that people can be a part of to enhance one's personal needs. Horses have a tremendous way in helping individuals through life's obstacles and are amazing teachers. The lessons learned through the activities with the horses can be applied to real life situations which help our clients grow and learn.
In Spring 2017, we will be offering many new programs, such as a Women's Wellness Clinic and an After School Program.
Through the Equine Assisted Growth & Learning program, we utilize horses to help individuals, children, youth and families with various learning, educational and human development goals such as teamwork, leadership skills, goal setting, bully prevention and intervention, behavioral issues, anger management, conflict resolution, communication, responsibility, self-confidence, relationship challenges and much more.

In this program we work with our clients to address certain needs that are set by the client by setting up ground activities with our horses. This is an experiential approach to growth and learning in that the client learns about themselves and others while participating in these activities with the horse.
