Marianne works with all ages, families, and veterans, and active service members and their family. The work will involve groundwork with horses.
There are ongoing trauma sessions and groups for children, military and veteran families, and a Community Service group for kids and adults in need of community service hours.
We look forward to seeing you on the farm!
Are you or your children interested in learning how to ride? We are offering riding lessons free to your family. Riding horses has many therapeutic attributes, however, the most important is that it's FUN!
Our Riding Program is on Saturdays. We will ride together as a group for the first couple weeks to assess abilities. Then we will work in groups based on the riders ability.
The arena is fully enclosed, but not heated. Please dress warmly, such as: dress in layers, wear headbands for ear warmth, leather soled shoes with small heel such as boots, bring gloves not mittens - Comfortable and warm.
During the groups, you will not only learn to ride, but learn to better trust those around you, your environment, and yourself. You will also learn ways to interact socially through your horse experience. Horses understand compassion and are able to show empathy, this will encourage self growth and worth.
Once you learn the basics of riding, you can eventually ride in the local shows and explore the farms 22 acres of trails.
We look forward to riding with you!
If interested come on over on a Saturday and get started.
