The Mindful Equine Afterschool Program is an 8 session social-emotional series that focuses on connecting humans and horses. Each session will revolve around a different theme as participants connect with horses and learn important life skills such as:

  • Safety

  • Connection

  • Communication

  • Leadership

  • Boundaries

  • Teamwork

  • Mindfulness

  • Self-expression

  • Emotional awareness

Students will arrive at Mission Acres and start with the grounding practice before working with the horses. Students will learn about horses in a mindful way building upon their skills each week. 


  1. There is no riding included as part of this program. All work with the horses will be done on the ground and in hand.

  2. Each participant must bring their own helmet (bike or ski helmet is fine) and wear it when working with the horses.
