Mission Statement

Rose of Sharon Equestrian School is dedicated to providing equine-facilitated learning opportunities for children and adults with disabilities.

Description

ROSES offers learning opportunities for children with disabilities to develop skills in basic horsemanship and stable management. While the content of our program focuses on horses, the benefit of involvement reaches well beyond the barn. Parents and participants report positive growth in the areas of self-esteem and social interaction, emotional and psychological well-being, physical confidence and stability, as well as improvements in academic achievement and family relationships. Programs at ROSES are presented with compassion, hope, patience, and humility. Compassion comes from our deep desire to help; hope from believing our efforts will effect positive change; patience in waiting for changes to occur in an individual's own time; and humility as we are privileged to see those changes manifesting in people's lives beyond the scope of the School.
