Hands On Horses is a newly revamped program aimed at teaching the human participants healthy and effective ways of hands-on interaction with horses! 

Participants sign up for a 3 week commitment.  This commitment includes a workshop led by a certified professional aimed at teaching things such as the Master Method, TTouch, & other methods of body and energy work with horses.

From there, sessions are held weekly on Sundays with the purpose of allowing participants the chance to practice what they have learned as well as the opportunity to create connection through grooming activities.
