Resource Description:
Kachina's Place provides therapeutic equestrian activities using rescued and trained horses for those with physical, cognitive, and emotional limitations. We improve quality of life through our equine-based therapy. By engaging in these activities our participants gain self-confidence and learn problem-solving, leadership, and communication skills. We provide a safe environment and provide opportunities to experiment, problem-solve, take risks, employ creativity, and ultimately find solutions that end up not only helping relationships with the horses, but in all areas of life.
