Stable Relationships – Grades 5-8

April 9 @ 5:30 pm - May 14 @ 7:30 pm


Stable Relationship program is a six-week program designed specifically for youth in currently in grades 5-8. This program harnesses the incredible power of horses to equip youth with positive character and leadership traits needed to develop healthy relationships at home, school and life through social and emotional equine-assisted learning activities. The program focuses on a different goal each week while partnered with the same horse each week. A graduation ceremony will be held to celebrate accomplishments and learnings on the final day.

Youth will be developing a relationship with one horse, by paying very close attention to the body language of their horse, and how they are communicating nonverbally to their horse and others.
Youth will learn to independently groom, halter and lead their horse through a variety of obstacle courses. Reflection journals will be completed each session.
There will be a 20-minute parent meeting on the first day.
