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.

TESTIMONIALS

“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.”
