Hands-On Horse Interaction Programs for Children and Adults
A really fun way to learn about horses and get inspired
We have found that the combination of kindness, compassion, encouragement, and hands-on horse interaction is powerful. Horses are extremely intelligent and naturally empathetic and compassionate, which explains why the love they offer, their kindness, their inner strength, and their wisdom are so healing. They offer emotional support to humans and to each other. Learning about horses, combined with our "From the Heart" programs, will teach youths to embrace the importance of offering emotional support to others.
Mini Hooves Reading Program
Tier 1 provides children the opportunity to have fun reading while enjoying open discussions that help them grasp vocabulary terms that foster kindness. This enables them to experience the value of giving social support, nurturing, having a sense of community. It can also aid in realizing how unintentional hurtful words and actions can be bullying. By combining their focus on terms of kindness and understanding the importance of thoughtful words and actions, their future will be brighter and easier to navigate toward safe environments.
Mini Hooves Kindness Challenge
Tier 2 – Tier 1 graduates implement what they have learned into their daily lives. Research shows a habit is often formed after only 18 days of continued action. By reaching out to at least one person a day for 30 days and journalizing their daily experience, via written entries, drawings, photos, or videos, they are on their way to appreciating a lifestyle of kindness.
From the Heart Team Building Activities
Tier 3 – Our "From the Heart" team building activities teach children the value of sharing their ideas through kindness and consideration of one another, and to learn from the horses how to offer emotional support to their team members.
Our Gallop to Greatness program was created by the Hooves and Hearts team. This program is designed to teach participants they have what it takes to be great. Going through the obstacle course and team building activities, participants will experience creative thinking and problem solving. Through the unique partnership with horses, children learn growth and development.
