To develop the human potential for positive change through experiential learning with horses.
What We Do
We collaborate with individuals, families, therapists and educators to develop customized on-the-ground experiences with horses. Our services are tailored to each individual or group to achieve their specific goals and objectives. Activities may include grooming, leading, feeding, turning-out, or simply observing or being in “the herd”. Our horse herd is comprised of a variety of horse breeds, personalities and backgrounds. Our human herd includes licensed professionals in the fields of psychology, education, social work and counseling, years of experience in equine therapy and equine assisted activities, youth and adult support programming, as well as successful entrepreneurs and community leaders.
Who We Serve
We serve individuals, families and groups, youth and adults seeking positive change. Our services empower individuals to discover, self-awareness, self-sufficiency, self-respect, self-control and self-esteem. We specialize in helping veterans, at-risk youth, individuals on the autism spectrum and their families.
