Learn More About The Impact
The accepting nature and biddable personality of the therapy horse encourages participants to test the limits of their abilities and learn to make good choices under the guidance of qualified therapy instructors. Licensed counselors guide families as they learn how to connect or reconnect through metaphorical activities with horses. Corporations and organizations grow as they progress through team building and leadership activities. Queen of Hearts volunteer program enables adult volunteers to work directly with the youth in the community by introducing them to a whole new world of horses. We provide a safe and structured work environment and set high expectations in accordance with the youth’s age, skill level and developmental maturity. We provide training and support for them to successfully complete their tasks. We provide a variety of learning opportunities for skill development such as equine management, office skills, and how to work and deal with the public and those with disabilities. Many of the youth that comes to Queen of Hearts are often those who need community service hours for high school or college and some are referred through at-risk programs or workforce development center
