Healing with Horses

In addition to services for individuals, families and organizations, we offer support groups for grieving youth. Participants interact with peers and horses in an arena to explore and address healthy grieving, social skills, communication issues and other dynamics necessary for healthy, meaningful relationships. This is a "ground" based program with no horse experience necessary.
