YOUTH LEADERSHIP with HORSES
The Youth Leadership with Horses 3-hour Program is offered to youth, ages 10 to 17, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 8:30 to 11:30 AM. Each participant receives one-on-one attention, so groups of mixed age can attend the program together, and each will receive instruction tailored to their particular age.
No previous horse experience is necessary.
This program is designed to be a hands-on, life-changing experience, for both the participants and the animals they are partnered with.
Self-confidence – overcoming fear
Developing positive relationships
This program takes place during the morning feeding, care and training of the horses. Each time you participate in the program, you will be introduced to a new aspect of what this entails, and will be given hands-on experiences to apply what you have learned.

“When I had my first encounter with horses, I was extremely scared because I truly didn't know what to expect. With me having cerebral palsy, I wasn't even sure if I could ride a horse. With the assistance of Master Rose, I built up the confidence to get up on a horse and have my first ride. It truly was an uplifting experience that I can carry with me for a lifetime. Since that experience it has opened doors in my life I never thought could've been opened. It was a life changing experience, and I have Master Rose to thank for that.”
