Global Locations

The Three Pillars

The Girl's and Women's Experiences are based on 3 unique pillars with proven benefits to build hope, confidence, and resilience.

1. Ride Horses

Develop the foundations of horsemanship with private lessons from a mentoring instructor. Research shows that riding and connecting with horses leads to significant physical, emotional, and psychological benefits.¹

2. Learn Life Skills

Learn life skills through The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People which are integrated throughout the experience. Research shows that The 7 Habits are powerful tools to teach problem solving, positive peer interactions, self-leadership, and whole-person wellness.²

3. Serve Others

Build work ethic, friendships, and perspective through service at the barn. Research shows that building social connections in a safe place is one of the strongest protections against self-harm.³
