Choosing a program that is right for you or your child is an important decision. We offer many programs avaliable to all ages and skill levels. Our programs offered are open to everyone and have NO prerequists; such as horse experience, or ability. We aim to work with participants to achieve their goals no matter where they lead!

 

Safety is our #1 priority in all of our programs!

 

Remember: All of our programs are offered to adults and youth! The whole family can join in too by participating in a Life Skills program to make family communication better and more successful!

 

**Please note: The Youth Life Skills and Adult Programs are two separate programs geared for both youth and adults, however they do cover the same curriculum. (Both of these programs make an excellent stepping stone for anyone interested in horsemanship or riding programs.)
