Horses don’t judge; they don’t make demands; they don’t show up as anything other than who they inherently are. Because of this, horses only care who you are in the very moment you are with them. This enables them to give unconditional acceptance to troubled youth who are revealing their true selves. This unconditional acceptance provides a healing platform for youth to begin to feel what a healthy, positive relationship is like. Our equine group looks to support at-risk youth learning to develop responsibility and make healthy decisions in an empowering manner.
