As more programs have risen in the tri-city area that focus on providing daily equine facilitated psychotherapy and mentor programs, we have shifted our focus to strengthening the marriages and families of Veterans and First Responders. Instead of providing daily sessions, we have moved to a retreat model that will be open to heroes and their families, locally as well as nationwide. Please check our events page to see a list of the retreats we are currently taking reservations for.

Equine Leadership Program


In a wild herd, horses have a hierarchy much like you’d find in a platoon, squadron or the workplace. There is a clear leader at the top with various levels of authority stepping down to the most submissive horse in the herd. Each member of the herd has their place and works for the good of the herd. We use a unique blend of horse communication techniques and equine facilitated learning to teach participants how to be effective and respected leaders. We do this through our Equine PT retreats (held monthly) and specific groups from local employers and colleges. The Equine Leadership Program is open to teen leadership groups (i.e. ROTC, Police Explorers) and adults. Please contact us if you would like to schedule a day long retreat for your group at 928-499-9442 or crose@bethanysgait.org.

Equine Retreats


Our two day retreats include equine facilitated learning sessions, as well as classroom work tailored to meet the needs of the group. Attendees are housed at a local retreat center where they can experience a variety of outdoor activities. We hold four different types of retreats - Military/First Responders; Wives of Military & First Responders; Military/First Responders Marriages; and Wounded Warriors (specifically for those who are currently members of a wounded warrior battalion in any branch of the military)
