Horses are herd animals and just like humans, they need to pay attention to others' cues to see how they should act and respond.

Working with the Homeplace Ranch, who have over 40 years of horsemanship experience we have developed a unique program to use horses to teach our campers about the ins and outs of social skills. Participants will ride horses in this program, as well as brush, groom, lead, and saddle the horses.
