HORSES HELPING IMPACT THE
GRAND RAPIDS COMMUNITY
Our most critical work is with at-risk clients referred to us by outside agencies throughout West Michigan. These clients have troubled histories: abuse, sex trafficking, addiction challenges, low self-worth, behavoral, and identity issues. We also provide a safe place for those experiencing grief, depression, PTSD, anxiety, trauma victims, Alzheimers/Dementia and many more.
Our experiential programs are on-ground and interactive through a variety of non-riding activities. All programs are facilitated by equine specialists, professional coaches, and therapists who process activities with participants.
Using dialog, observation, and open-ended questions, clients discover perceptions and mental processes behind their beliefs and actions. Horses help people tell their story and find their own solutions in a non-judgemental, emotionally safe place.
Our programs take place in the barn, arena or pasture using the unique interaction with horses. Sessions build upon each other to create new neural pathways for dealing with real life situations by engaging in critical thinking, communication, decision making and self awareness.
