Building Leadership, Communication, Compassion, Respect and Responsibility
Hooves with Heart offers Puget Sound area youth opportunities for self-discovery in a natural and holistic environment. Educational programs teach young people how to build leadership and practical life skills through healthy connections with horses, small farm animals and nature.
Are you interested in supporting youth connecting with horses and nature in a positive environment? Be a part of our team working on behalf of youth who show heart and desire to learn life-skills, through experiences afforded to them at Holly Farm. Volunteers experienced with horses may work with Hooves with Heart sponsored youth by applying to Equine Life Solutions www.equinelifesolutions.org, who conducts our horsemanship programs. If you are not experienced with horses, but have other gifts to offer, please contact us and we will explore the right fit. Thank you for your interest!
We have new riders! These remarkable young adults have completed seven consecutive weeks of partnering with horses. Their phenomenal commitment, and growth in skills and knowledge, have earned them a place on the back of a 1000lb horse! Not only does this take courage and confidence, it takes trust from the horse. Due to these young people’s dedication and time, a new relationship has resulted bringing about a positive partnership: horse and rider! Congratulations!
