Program Description

“Research suggests that incorporating horses into therapy provides older adults with a greater ability to live fully in the here-and-now. Often mirroring emotions and the physical demeanor of people who engage with them, horses provide opportunities to boost awareness about certain behaviors and may even help lessen the effects of anxiety, loneliness, and pain.”

The Silver Saddles Program provides older adults a meaningful activity to engage and a chance to connect with others.

The equine assisted therapy program provides an opportunity to enjoy nature in a rural atmosphere and interact with horses in a safe environment. 

The Silver Saddles Program works to provide seniors with an experience that will benefit participant’s physically, emotionally, and mentally. 

Seniors interact with horses by engaging in activities such as grooming, decorating, observing a horse parade, and feeding treats.
