VetKids – Ages 6-14

August 13 @ 9:00 AM - August 16 @ 1:00 PM

We understand that in a military family “kids serve too” and we want to invite children of veterans and service members in our community to join us for a 4-day intensive horsemanship program designed just for military children. This program takes horse-inspired insights into fostering creativity, developing assertiveness, dealing with conflict, heightening mind-body awareness & balance, and making lasting connections with horses and each other … all while having a ton of fun!

The bond participants develop with their horses provides a low-key and trusting environment in which they can choose to share their experiences of parents being deployed, or returning from deployment.

All our participants and many parents comment on how important it was that everyone in the program “was in the same boat,” with shared experiences and shared emotions; something that is not the case in educational settings.
