Mission: Positive change and personal growth through horses; LEAD with Horses promotes Leadership, Education, and Active Development for the children & youth of Western Nevada. Vision: At LEAD with Horses, we envision a world where every child has the opportunity to explore, attain, and reach beyond her potential. Our youth will have the desire and skills to become engaged and active citizens. We will nurture and cultivate the strengths and abilities of our children and youth to realize the promise of individuals and the collective community.
Using a strength-based, experiential approach, LEAD provides structure and guidance to assist young people in finding their own solutions and inspiration. Our short-term goal is to provide youth an opportunity to explore and learn in a non-threatening atmosphere with positive peer interactions and caring adults. Our long-term goal is to help them develop critical life skills to build resilience. We want youth to leave LEAD with Horses better equipped to problem-solve, manage stress, reach personal goals, and improve social interactions.
LEAD with Horses nurtures and cultivates the strengths and abilities of our children and youth -- to realize the promise of individuals and the collective community. Our programs provide an emotional, physical, and intellectual experience. Horses build a stronger sense of self.
