Youth Leadership Programs

Developing today’s youth into tomorrow’s leaders through fun and engaging horseplay!

Our unique group programs create experiences to inspire youth to reach their full potential and provide confidence and alternative skills to help them overcome challenges and cope with the social pressures they face today. Partnered with a horse, teams are encouraged to be creative, innovative, accept responsibility and accountability to ultimately overcome barriers and achieve objectives. Through effective communication, participants recognize the value of mutual trust, respect and personal integrity to help guide them in their every day life.

Creating Future Leaders
