Partnering with horses, enhances GIFTS and supports CHALLENGES.
Together, we CO-CREATE therapeutic – recreational experiences that build on strengths while supporting each childs unique developmental process.
By creating therapeutic containers to learn, grow and play in – Kids experience themselves differently, develop compassion for self & others, and practice CONNECTING with their own competency while getting to be themselves in the world.
Three Ways to Horse-Play
What we really do together is ENGAGE.
- We learn to connect through touch
- We learn to be brave by trying new things
- We practice gratitude by rewarding effort
- We employ compassion when we care for another
- We sense more profoundly when we practice tuning into various sensory stimulation
Over 20+ years of coaching & supporting children, youth & families, this is what I KNOW matters ~ Real people showing up as they are, engaging in REAL connections, makes a REALLY POSITIVE impact in the lives of our children.

We invite horses to show up as teachers, masterful guides.
We use the barn & riding ring as an arena for life.
It’s all LEARNING!
Small Group Horse-Play Sessions
Weekly Horse-Play classes where kiddos 4 – 16 MOVE, PLAY, BE, LEARN by way of the HORSE.
Think Acro, Dance, and Sensory Integration ALL on Horseback. It’s trick riding, freestyle movement, experiential learning and nature based education in a radical 90 minuet play date!!
NO previous experience with horses is needed to BENEFIT from Horse-Play.
An interest in horses, some stretchy clothes…. and an I DON’T MIND GETTIN DIRTY attitude is a good place to start.
As a child & youth care proffessional for over 25 years, I’m passionate about supporting the unique development of children & youth.
What I’ve discovered as the MOST consistently meaningful avenue to impact children is this:
Promoting connections to nature, animals and ENCOURAGING the creation of something meaningful.
Experiential learning massively aids in the development of:
Team Work & leadership skills
Courage & creativity
Positive risk taking abilities
Communication & oral reasoning
Gross motor development
– strength & flexibility
Not to mention Patience and Kindness… Horses educate and inform our hearts & spirits.
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
