Horses hear your heart beat 4' away.
Horses have the ability to calm us, to ground us, they connect to us and us them. This creates a unique and special bond. We work with this ability and allow the horse to teach, to motivate. They teach life skills, leadership and empathy.

Herds work as one.
Communication, body language, silent communication, empathy, trust, respect and cooperation. These tools are what keep a herd safe. Our workshops are about building life skills and leadership skills through the power of the horse. We work as a team, partnering with a horse and a peer. We meet challenges through obstacles and working as a herd, always paralleling our experience with our horse with life.
Bullying is a painful subject which needs to be addressed. We, as a society need to prepare and educate our young people not to become victims or aggressors and to understand the repercussions of their actions. Our youth curriculum programs can be a one day workshop or range between 4-8 sessions at 1 session per week. Participants receive a personal journal which allows the effectiveness of the course but also to track the advancements of each youth.
