Wellness Programs

Pathways Program

Does your teen or preteen struggle from the stress and demands of life?

Complicated by social anxiety, grief, trauma, ADHD, depression, bullying or being bullied, school refusal, and more?

Interaction with horses creates an environment which is sensory rich, non-verbal, non-judgmental and present centered. The large and powerful body of the horse is an unignorable point of interest, and its sheer mass creates a vulnerability which often allows teenagers to drop defensive posturing and explore new ways of communicating.

No horse experience required. Unmounted activities. Certified Instructors.

Farm Group Programs

Our socially supportive group program is an introduction to relaxing and uplifting farm activities such as hiking and spending time outside; grooming a horse and learning about working with horses; walking and interacting with goats.
