This introductory program offers unique experiential learning sessions interacting with horses, whilst also journeying on a path of new discoveries and learning. It’s primary focus is to build and develop social and emotional skills.
Sessions are one hour long and occur once a week, allowing for new skills to be assimilated into daily life. The program can be delivered in small groups (no more than 4) however, it can also be facilitated one on one.
This program is particularly suited to children, but can also be used with children and adolescents transitioning into high school and university, as well as being adapted for adults.
