Horses are an ideal educational tool for use with children. Once a child is taught the basics of dealing properly with a horse, he or she can become the leader the horse seeks. When the horse feels safe and at peace with the person, cooperation is a hundredfold and the child can easily get the horse to do what is asked of it.
Our interactive youth programs are specifically designed to ensure the learning and retention of necessary life skills It is an excellent approach with the horses being the teacher as the horse has "loud teachable moments" that they never forget. This gives the youths an experience to pull from when they are faced with choices in everyday life as they build strong solid skills working with their teacher. Our youth curriculum programs are usually longer-term and range between 8-15 sessions. This allows our facilitators to not only ensure the effectiveness of the course but also to track the advancements in each of the youth within it.
