HWYP delivers equine assisted programs targeted at youth aged 12 to 18 who are at risk of disengaging from school, anti-social behaviours and/or who are skirting on the edges of the juvenile justice system.
Our programs use horse whispering which is about building rapport with a horse using gentle and respectful methods that encourage natural cooperation. We use these same principles with young people who are dealing with complex life situations.
These profoundly effective programs harness the immediate and non-threatening feedback provided by the horse to teach youth emotional regulation and respectful communication skills in a safe environment which builds their self-confidence and social awareness. Youth are empowered to re-engage back into their education, workforce, community and family.
