Therapeutic Horseback Riding Services
Children in foster care have experienced very difficult and scary situations in their young lives. Agape is a safe place for them to just be a kid while also learning important life lessons with the support of their new friend–their horse.
Agape partners with the Department of Child Services (DCS) and Choices Care Coordinated Solutions to provide therapeutic riding lessons to children in foster care. Reach out to your DCS Family Care Coordinator or Choices Care Coordinator for more information on how to get a referral for your child(ren).
In many ways Agape had contributed to her growth. She has developed healthy relationships with her horse, staff, and fellow riders. She is learning to more effectively identify her emotional state and work through addressing her needs to make changes when necessary. Caring for her horse is teaching her a responsibility that is carrying over into life away from the barn. And she is displaying a respect for others that is refreshing. We both love Agape!!”
