Senior Thursday with the Horses

August 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join a small group of other seniors and spend the afternoon sitting outside in nature in the presence of horses. This experience is not only for horse lovers, it could be an opportunity to connect with these magnificent creatures for the first time. As your mobility allows, you can walk around the field with your chosen horse, stand up and brush her coat until it shines, or just sit and enjoy the sunshine while petting and talking to your new equine friend, sharing stories and memories. You will connect with nature, relax in the presence of a small herd of very gentle horses, and socialize with other seniors. This afternoon will leave you refreshed and revitalized. Studies have shown that being in the presence of horses has many therapeutic advantages for seniors struggling with anxiety, depression, or loneliness and can even improve symptoms of cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

Max 6 people, $20/person (or pay what you can)
