Special Opportunity at Dream Catchers for

Richmond Area Youth with Special Needs

For 2 hours, children will partner with our amazing horses and participate in fun, creative, and engaging activities such as:  

  •     working as a team with a horse through an obstacle course
  •     learning the language of the horse to better communicate feelings
  •     caring for horses to learn self-care and care for others

Equine Assisted Learning encourages creative exploration with a focus on improving, behavior, effective communication, life skills, and safety awareness. 

Activities will challenge the students to engage in appropriate communication, learn how to ask for help, communicate feelings clearly to peers and adults, follow procedures and multi-step directions, demonstrate care for others, problem solving, as well as navigating and maintaining awareness of surroundings.  

Services will be delivered by PATH Intl. Certified Instructors.  Dream Catchers staff will collaborate with parents and teachers to customize each field trip to meet the needs of the students.
