Safety is stressed and each participant is encouraged to reach the following goals:

  • Team Skills
  • Personal Achievement
  • Bonding with their horse partner
  • Learning the equine language
  • Improved healthy communication
  • Self Confidence
  • Riding a horse

About the Program

The Program is designed to complement existing school schedules and commitments

  • Students commute to the ranch & commit to a 5 week program
  • Ten sessions: students come to the ranch twice a week (one day after school and the other on Saturday mornings)
  • Sessions run for one and half hours - usually a half hour of class time and then an hour hands-on outside at the ranch
  • Emphasis on relationship with horse (buddy)
  • Incentive-based, individual goals, competition, positive-oriented focused
  • Use caring, supportive and encouraging dynamics
  • There is no charge to students - parents/guardians are encouraged to participate

Student referrals come from local government, social services agencies, and foster homes​
