WINGS - Work, Integrity, New Life, Growth, Service
We welcome young women starting at age 13 through their first post-secondary year to apply to our WINGS Program. We look for applicants who love horses and who are driven to learn about riding and caring for them. Students must supply their own ASTM/SEI-approved riding helmet. We provide all other equipment and tack.
We pair students with their own horse and teach them all aspects of horsemanship. We instruct, monitor, and supervise our students closely. They are responsible for their horses, including grooming and exercising, cleaning stalls and tack, barn management, and limited aspects of supervised veterinary care.
Our students work with their horses two days a week, receive one horsmanship/riding lesson a week, and participate in a group session each week. Each student keeps a log of his or her horse’s care.
Our WINGS Program provides a safe space for our students to learn, develop, and grow. Key outcomes include relationship-building skills, personal responsibility, self-confidence, and healthy stress relief.

Equine Experiential Education
Equine Experiential Education is a methodology in which facilitators engage with participants in a direct experience with equines, goal based activities, and focused reflection on the experience in order to increase knowledge, develop skills and clarify values. Equine experiential training may be offered in a one-on-one setting or in a group setting. Training is custom tailored to meet the goals of educational institutions, organizations, companies or corporations as part of their leadership and team training processes. The activities are interactive, unmounted and require no prior horse experience. They utilize the process of building a bond and relationship with a horse to discovery the participants patterns of communication, leadership skills and problem solving skills. How individuals approach the activity carries back to their home and workplace in new awareness of productive behaviors and specific, measurable team action items.
