Find Your Inner Unicorn
Ages 8 to 12
- Class size: 2 – 4 people
- Scholarships Available
This program is designed for those 8-12 years old who are experiencing increased anxiety and understanding of the world around them. Students will discover how to understand their own emotions and what to do with them. In that the horse is a mirror to our human emotions and actions, the horse will be able to interpret the student’s body language. This reaction will help the student to really ‘see’ themselves. Horses do not negotiate with our emotions and have no judgment.
These experiential sessions go beyond ‘talk therapy’. Students will have plenty of one on one time building a relationship with the horses. Our goal is to meet the student where they are that day at that moment to help them understand who they are. Class size is limited to a minimum of 2 participants and a maximum of 4 per group. There is no riding in this program, but plenty of horsing around.
Please inquire below for Private Lessons or for Parent/Child Lessons.
