EQUINE ENRICHMENT: HORSEMANSHIP AND MINDFULNESS FOR TWEEN AND TEENS
Our equine assisted learning course is an hour-long program that focuses on the therapeutic benefits of working with horses. Developed by a neuroscientist and clinician, the curriculum is designed to teach teens and tweens from all backgrounds cognitive behavioral and mindfulness techniques that help them manage stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as improve their executive function. Our program offers a unique opportunity to work closely with horses, which has been proven to promote relaxation, increase social interaction, and improve executive function. In each class, participants will have the opportunity to work with our amazing horses, learn about them, care for them, and develop mindfulness skills that they can apply even when they're not in contact with the horses. The focus of our course is not only on skill-building but also on the joy of spending time in the company of these wonderful animals.
