Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Equine Facilitated Learning Program has been put on hold. Fortunately, the Working Student Program is running and currently has openings for qualified children ages 10 to 18. This special program pairs each child with their own horse, allowing students to gain knowledge in horsemanship, responsibility, self-confidence and more.
“The Gleneayre Equestrian Program has a positive impact on its students by providing a place of structure, consistency and normalcy during these uncertain times,” said Alison Johnson, Managing Director and Trainer. Jeannie Mattioni, Program Assistant and Trainer, echoed her thoughts by stating, “The Gleneayre Equestrian Program has given our kids a safe sanctuary where they can relieve stress and be outdoors. I think, especially now, we can all understand and appreciate the power that a little bit of normalcy can have in bringing a smile to our face.”
