ABOUT OUR EQUINE CONNECTIONS PROGRAM
Right now, Spirit Reins believes that, in these challenging times, offering a supportive space and the opportunity for connection is the most meaningful way we can serve our community. Our new Equine Connections program is offering one-hour, in-person ranch experiences with our equine professionals and horses to provide connection and promote emotional stability for teens and caregivers struggling with the widespread isolation caused by COVID-19.
During an Equine Connections experience, participants will enjoy a sense of connection with nature, others, and themselves by engaging in mindful interactions with our horses, warm conversations with our equine professionals, and a spirit of play and curiosity at the ranch.
As an immediate and short-term support service, participants can schedule a same-day or next-day experience at the ranch. Equine Connections experiences will be offered Monday through Friday from 10AM to 5:15PM.
Equine Connections is for youth, teens, and adolescents (ages 10-25) and caregivers.
An Equine Connections experience can be scheduled as a same-day or next-day appointment.
Experiences last one hour and take place in person at the Spirit Reins ranch.
The cost of each experience is $60, although a financial assistance policy and sliding scale is available and can be calculated in your enrollment form.
This is not a therapy program and licensed therapists are not involved, although this experience may complement any therapy work you are doing with a licensed professional.
Experiences are not covered by Medicaid or insurance.
Participants must adhere to our COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocol.
