We are excited to announce that we have officially expanded and added a new program location in Brant County, Ontario. The 7R’s Ranch, named after our core program model, is a beautiful place of restoration. The 25-acre property allows for multiple program areas to serve youth at the same. We are currently intaking youth for two program streams at the ranch.
L.E.A.D. - (Liberty Equine Assisted Development) Program is designed to develop the limited skill sets of at-risk youth. The youth go through special activities while leading a horse individually or in a group. Each structured activity is a fun and engaging exercise with an intended learning outcome to increase employability skills in the youth. Communication skills, respect, boundaries, and team work are just a few of the skills these activities develop. With an opportunity for a farm internship, the youth can also develop experience for their resume.
Leading WELL - Leading Well is a program to help youth develop a personal approach for their mental wellbeing. The youth will escape the city and join us at our peaceful 7Rs Ranch. The youth will learn to care for horses and themselves in an effort to help them improve symptoms of mental health challenges such as depression and anxiety.
Program is free of charge. No horse experience is necessary. This program is on the ground (no horseback riding). Both programs are offered Tuesdays or Thursdays for 1 hour sessions. Contact Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register.
