Gallop to Greatness
Team up with equines to improve team building, leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills! Using equine assisted learning, teams and groups will use natural horse and heard behaviors to accomplish their own goals to improve the individuals and group as a whole. This program has a track for teamwork or for bullying. Regardless of the track you choose, you will benefit from improved communication skills, kindness, and overall confidence.
Reining it in
Reigning it in’ provides a unique opportunity to develop a plethora of skills using a program tailored to each individual or small group. The program uses creative activities and a fun learning environment for individuals of all ages and abilities. Working together, we’re able to reign in life’s many challenges through the eyes, ears, and heart of a horse.
"I am so very glad that the kids will be able to go this Sunday! As I said on the phone, the kids loved it last time. Well worth it for them. One of the best activities they have ever been to!!!"
Marla Parish Director of Administrative Services at Crossroads Youth and Family Services
"I can’t say enough good things about flames to hope equine assisted literacy program. My daughter began participating in the early part of April and since then her attitude toward reading has drastically changed from “no” to “I can do it!” In the span of 6 weeks, her reading score has jumped 2 levels after having been plateaued for several months. My little girl now WANTS to read and WANTS to succeed. I stand in awe at how much an hour with a miniature horse can impact reading. Who’d of thought that the best things truly do come in the smallest of packages."
"We noticed some of the residents that normally don’t communicate… with others did with the horses. One gentleman smiled from ear to ear and another had tears come to his eyes. It was very humbling to see. It was amazing to hear the stories that the veterans would tell about when they were younger and worked around horses.”
Jenny Norton, Sulphur Veterans Center
