At Horse Sense, our students come from all sectors of the community. We really believe in youth development and try to provide a safe, inclusive environment where anyone can learn to appreciate and care for horses. While not specifically a therapeutic program, we do have a wide range of students with physical and emotional disabilities and work with several community non-profits and children’s group homes each month. We believe that horses teach patience, compassion, teamwork and communication skills and we love sharing these experiences with individuals and businesses in our community.
