Individual

Equine Assisted Services

We offer EAS for individuals of all backgrounds. Whether you are a veteran, a first responder, a person who has experienced any sort of trauma, or struggles with mental/emotional challenges in your life, we are here to help. Through the building of relationships between horses and humans – on the ground – we empower you to work through your struggles, showing you how to utilize tools that can help you navigate life in a positive and mentally/emotionally healthy way.

We welcome both children and adults to join us on the path to healing.

Group

Our group programs help to create bonds between those who share similar challenges in life. Whether difficulties result from anxiety, a need for anger management, addictions, or other life stressors, we gather together individuals whose sufferings are in some way comparable to break free of personal hurdles. In these groups, we work with horses – animals that interact with each other and with humans through instinct, intuition, and patience – to explore how we can use healthy coping mechanisms to live life more productively. Our group offerings include, but are not limited to;

• Team building
• Veteran Groups
• Military Families
• Children
• Trauma Survivors
• First Responder
• Front-Line Workers

Retreats

Our retreats are offered each year. Our goal is to incorporate growth and introduce healing in symbiotic group settings such as those mentioned in the Group” category. Our retreats take place over 5-day periods that include equine-assisted services, coupled with additional wellness encouraging modalities. During these retreats, we also offer experiences that combine enjoyable activities that encourage mindful relaxation and focus.

“This retreat felt safe and inclusive. I was able to participate at my own pace and the other participants, leaders, and volunteers all looked out for one another.”

Warhorse Veteran Bee Project

The Warhorse Bee Project is part of our intensive healing program offered to local Veterans who are dedicated to sustainable beekeeping and honey production. In late April, each Veteran will each build their own hive box and will receive their own bees, tools, and knowledge to maintain a healthy and viable hive. The Veterans will be responsible for hive inspections, mite control and harvesting their own honey and honeycomb throughout the summer. By maintaining healthy bee colonies and nurturing the wildflowers that grace our landscape, we ensure the long-term viability of our honey production while supporting the vital role of pollinators. 

  • Late April through October
  • Call for Available Slots

 

“Working with the bees in the apiary helps me to be in the present. My stress level is greatly reduced and I am able to think clearly. The bees depend on me for their survival.”
