Horses are incredibly sensitive to human emotions and their emotional intelligence can be a helpful tool in one’s journey through grief. The minimum age for children is 6. No horse experience is needed and all activities are unmounted.

The cost to participate is $20 per family. You can register by calling 888-501-7077 or emailing[email protected].
