RJ Stokley's Commitment

my purpose

With the ever growing concerns facing our youth over their management of anxiety and depression, I hope to introduce them to Experiential Horsemanship.  Participants will learn hands-on skills which supports traditional ground techniques to learn ways to cope and heal.  I recently was fortunate enough to find two caring horses in need of new homes.  We have named them Orion (the gray) and Cepheus (the bay).  Appropriately named after the constellations who guide us in the night sky, so shall our horses help children and teens maneuver life's challenges. Horses are known for their therapeutic ability to emulate human emotions. With the proven methods of Experiential Learning techniques, students will be able to understand the horse's body language, which in turn will make them aware of their present mood and how to alter their perceptive behaviors.  Our ultimate goal is for our children to be one with nature and live happily in the moment.  Just as much as our horses want to be loved and valued, so we hope every child knows they are too!

Venture classes will be offered for children to get outdoors and reconnect in nature.  Keep informed of our upcoming classes by subscribing to our newsletter.
