Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Gleneayre Equestrian Program's mission is to provide an experiential learning environment where children facing challenges and horses come together for the betterment of each other's lives through teaching sound horsemanship, ethics, and character skills; and youth have opportunities for physical and emotional growth, responsibility, and self-discovery.

Horse-related programs:
The Gleneayre Equestrian Program (GEP) is a non-profit organization for children experiencing challenges, including but not limited to academic, family, or financial challenges and challenges associated with military families. Our program includes Working Student, Equine Facilitated Learning, and Equine Assisted Support Services components. <br/><br/>Designed for students as young as ten through their thirteenth year in school, the Working Student program matches each youth with a project horse at our farm. Members are responsible for all aspects of caring for and riding their project horse. Currently, there are twelve children enrolled in this program. Involving an extensive commitment of both time and effort, Working Student requires participants to attend the program a minimum of four days per week. In this environment, children must interact with each other, the horses, and their instructor. The Working Student program provides an education in sound horsemanship and riding including barn management, feeding, proper grooming, supervised veterinary care, daily care of equipment and tack, and weekly riding lessons in hunters, equitation, or dressage. The Working Student program places a strong emphasis on time management, organization, responsibility, and leadership skills.<br/><br/>The Equine Facilitated Learning program is a curriculum based, non-riding educational program that provides an alternative to the traditional, mainstream classroom setting. At our farm, students are provided with an opportunity to learn character skills, conflict resolution, and team building skills with horses as their facilitators and partners. Our curriculums follow the Strides to Success model and can be tailored to meet the needs of any school group. Most groups attend once a week for a few hours during their normal school day. The lessons take place in our covered arena and attached classroom and include group discussion, writing components, and equine activities. This program is designed for students who do not thrive in their usual classroom setting, including students with learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, auditory and speech impairments, and truancy issues.<br/><br/>Our Equine Assisted Support Services program follows the EAGALA model for Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. This program pairs a licensed mental health professional with an equine specialist, who are both EAGALA certified, to provide an alternate therapeutic approach. This program involves exercises with the horses on the ground and gives us yet another use for our horses who are retired from riding. This program can be utilized as part of the treatment plan for any issues that would normally be addressed in traditional therapy.
