Horse therapy offers a number of benefits, both physical and emotional, offering a non-verbal communication between a horse and a teen by strengthening the emotional bond, allowing them to communicate without words:
- Muscle building
- Building self-esteem
- Regaining trust
- Feeling acceptance
- Improved concentration
Horse therapy allows individuals to learn to live in the present by spending time outdoors and with nature, bringing comfort back into their lives and broadening their senses.
It has been said that interacting with a horse, is to deal with their mood swings, attitudes, and unique personalities, making their temperament similar to that of a teenager during their adolescent years.
Our program provides a healthy and healing atmosphere for the teen and young adult (between the ages of 12 – 18 years) to bond and connect with a horse trained for emotional healing, with an emphasis on educating about the importance of establishing a healthy, mental well-being, as an alternative to making poor choices; by providing them with a sense of belonging and self-love.
We offer supportive, co-ed groups, led by dynamic, responsible, and well-trained leaders (our horses), teaching teens the ability to learn about themselves individually through acceptance and personal growth.
We don’t walk this walk alone.
