Our programs create experiences to inspire youth to reach their full potential and provide confidence and alternative skills to help them overcome challenges and cope with the social pressures they face in today’s world. Teamed with a horse, youth are encouraged to be resourceful, inventive, accept responsibility and accountability to ultimately overcome barriers and achieve objectives. Through effective communication, participants recognize the value of mutual trust, respect and personal integrity to help guide them in their every day life.
We partner with our horses in a safe, controlled environment and with no riding being involved we welcome all participants aged 8 and older. Our programs range from 6-12 weeks in duration with sessions being approx. 1-1.5hrs long. This gives participants the opportunity to reflect and use skills learned in the arena and allows our facilitators to track the advancements throughout the participants own personal journey. We strive to keep families/teachers and counsellors informed of objectives, a-ha moments and personal victories so that learning is paralleled back to everyday life.
“Horses are incredibly forgiving. They fill in places we’re not capable of filling ourselves.”Buck Brannaman
