Stable Wellness is the equestrian program provided by The STAND Foundation that takes a holistic approach to equestrianism. This low-cost equine therapeutic sport program not only helps marginalized youth gain confidence in their equestrian and rodeo skills, but also strengthens their mental capacity to unknown lengths. Using equestrianism and life-skills training, the participants are empowered to develop feelings of empathy as well as the ability to communicate their needs and feelings in healthy ways.
1. Equestrian Everything
Our Equestrian Everything Workshop is an all inclusive experience. We provide transportation to our farm and these are the classes that groups engage in:
Horsemanship and Basic Riding: This experience introduces the sensitive and curious ways of horses to the students
Equine Themed Thera-Art: This experience provides an emotionally safe space featuring equestrian themed art projects emphasizing positive self-care
Mindfulness: Through a calming and inspirational yoga class, the students will learn about the purpose of yoga and meditation as well as how to include Mindfulness into their daily lives.
Nutritional Literacy: The students will go on a nutritional journey that will help them make healthier choices.
2. Great Outdoor Adventures
When learning about horses, you will not only learn about the animals themselves, their care, safety, and the basics of riding; but you will also learn about responsibility, patience, good work ethic and much more. There will also be other fun activities for you to enjoy, such as:
archery, boating, art, and so much more!
Be sure to join us because you do not want to miss out on all the excitement and fun!
