Freedom to Flourish

Freedom to Flourish is a mentoring program that utilizes equine assisted activities, crafts, assignments, horsemanship skills, etc. to help individuals achieve life skills that will promote healthy relationship and provide overall well-being. 

The participant will be teamed up with a mentor and "their" horse for 1 hour each week. They will have their own brush bag for grooming their horse. An individualized plan that focuses on strengths and challenges is used to help choose activities as well as monitor progress.

Poor communication and self-esteem are common problems in our youth, especially if they have experienced trauma or neglect. Communication between parents (or adult clients), mentor and program director is ongoing to promote reaching both short and long term goals.
