This equine therapy program provides youth with equine education, positive relationships, mentorship, and the necessary skills for basic equine care and beginner riding.
Youth will build confidence and gain new perspectives by creating meaningful relationships with horses, other riders, and facilitators.
For Calgary youth experiencing adversity due to mental health issues, socioeconomic issues, difficulty in school, difficulty at home or in care, anxiety, depression, or ADHD.
Participants build a strong bond with the horses. This connection breaks down barriers and helps youth feel safe, loved, and accepted unconditionally by another living being.
Horses mirror our behaviour and emotional energies and provide immediate responses.
Horses' direct feedback helps youth learn resiliency, acceptance of varying situations, and gives them experience navigating changes in their environment. Participants leave with more tools to regulate their own emotions.
Learning about our own presence and relevance to the response of the horse leads to personal awareness and leadership.
This program fosters self-awareness, reflection and mindfulness. These sessions provide a safe environment for self-exploration.
