*Strict COVID-19 guidelines in place, masks and social distancing are mandatory."

Animal assisted behavioral interventions are therapeutic interventions that incorporate a high level of behavioral strategies such as goal setting, increasing behavioral deficits and decreasing behavioral excesses. While working on these and other skills we incorporate animals, such as horses, dogs, cats, pigs, and birds, into our treatment plan. We need your help to make these sessions a success! Furthermore, we need help with our horseback riding lessons, grooming of horses, tacking up and untacking horses, and general help around the barn!

Come on by and join our team!
