Adaptive Horsemanship Program
We provide an intense experience that shows our students that they are capable of so much more than they imagined. Caring for an animal 15 times your size is at first intimidating and scary, and becomes empowering and exciting.
The horse is a unique example of gentleness and power and responds to all people according to their intentions, not their age, size, race, or social status. The horse is a gentle judge of character and students adjust their behaviour accordingly. We focus on building self image, one student at a time. Accomplishing not just a new physical skill or emotional breakthrough, but providing a context for the student to experience a new sense of self worth by doing meaningful work alongside their peers, instructors and volunteers.
Our facility in Half Moon Bay is very quiet and beautiful. Surrounded by farmland and Open Space, people from the city experience the healing power of farm/ranch life and participate in healthy outdoor activity.
