One client, one horse, one Wrangler (mentor) is our philosophy for this program. Clients work one on one with an experienced Wrangler and the horse of their choosing. Our Wranglers aren’t chosen at random; clients are paired with the best match for them, whether it be a Veteran, First Responder, or a local horse person.
Through this program, clients are taught how to care for the horse, how to work with them on the ground, and how to ride. They work through four different levels of horsemanship skill – Mustang, Greenhorn, Maverick, and, finally, Wrangler. It takes about a year to get through all four levels as we want the client to strive for proficiency and in turn have a feeling of true accomplishment.
Each session is individualized to meet the client’s needs and designed to help them build a bond with their horse. This leads to greater confidence, elevated self-esteem, and a better understanding of what a healthy relationship looks like. We hold four 8-week session blocks each year. This program is open to adults and children 5 and over.
