The Horsemanship Program activity goals are to develop an improved self image, confidence, learn responsibility, and provide positive social integration for children.  The children will learn to set goals and achieve those goals by building a relationship with the horse based on trust and respect.  Through this program the children will learn proper riding techniques, training methods, as well as caring for the horses.  The children may also have opportunities to use what they have learned to be part of local horse activities including assisting other special needs children with therapeutic riding.
