Horse Therapeutic Interaction Programs for Children and Adults
Mini Hooves Reading Program
Tier 1 – Our Mini Hooves Reading Program provides children the opportunity to enjoy reading, open discussions, new terms, and creating vocabulary based on the topics. Topics include a variety of topics for each group, as wells as social support, a sense of community, kindness, anti-bullying, hurtful words and actions, protection through instinct and safety, and creating inspirational phrases to reflect what they have learned.
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 18 days of continued action. By reaching out to at least one person a day for 30 days and journaling their daily experience via a written entry, a drawing, a photo, a video, or any other creative way,, 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 Activity students will participate in various teamwork activities to understand the value of teamwork through kindness and consideration of one another.
