Each 4-hour session is $65. For those needing financial assistance, partial and full scholarships are available.
Phase I–Introductory Program
Phase I of the program consists of a one half-day introductory workshop. Here you will learn the basics of safe interaction with horses—always our number one concern. (Again, no riding is involved in either phase.) The focus will be on understanding physical and emotional cues, the ability to read feedback from the horses, and learning skills to connect meaningfully with them.
Upcoming HorseLink for Veterans Introductory Classes:
Phase two consists of two half-day workshops, each with its own theme which builds upon the skills learned in phase one. You must complete the Introductory program before attending these sessions.
I. Improving Communication & Strengthening Relationships:
In this workshop, you will acquire skills for authentic and clear communication and how to maintain effective boundaries with others in ways that inspire trust, respect, and cooperation.
II. Tools for Realizing Your Goals:
In this workshop, you will learn how to use intention, focus, and all the previously learned skills to take meaningful action and accomplish the outcomes you desire. You may also gain insight about the times you get in your own way and create barriers to achieving what you want.
Pay It Forward
HorseLink is founded and operated on the idea of reciprocity. We do charge a small fee to attend our Horse Power or HorseLink For Veterans programs, but we never want to money to the reason someone does not receive the support they need and want. We understand that charging a fee for these services could be a barrier for many to benefiting from the special gift of working with horses. Therefore, we always provide an option to receive a scholarship to attend our programs. We are able to do this in part due to our Pay It Forward initiative.
If you feel moved by your experience with the HorseLink horses and if you would like to allow others to experience this transformative work, we ask you to Pay It Forward. There are significant costs to produce our programs: facility maintenance, horse care, facilitators, staff, and more!
You will have the opportunity upon completion of your program to voluntarily donate as much or as little as would like and can afford in order to Pay It Forward to future participants. Thank you!
