About the event
This group is limited to 10 participants.
This group meets every Tuesday for 6 weeks.
This group is for teens who are having a hard time with feeling okay at school, with friends or family, or showing up with confidence. Struggles are normal, but sometimes those struggles are too much, and ways of dealing with that or escaping make sense: substances, eating or not eating, checking out, or other ways to try to feel better that don’t always turn out well or help. Whatever that is, this group is a place for connecting with other teens who are in the same place, who understand, and with our horses and team. We will help teens to be more aware of what’s going on, how to talk about it, and how to use skills to feel better. The horses teach us all how connect with safely and confidence, and finally… that it’s possible to be okay.
Participants are supported by our team as they learn to identify feelings, express emotions and needs, and apply leadership skills. They will explore what it means to have empathy for themselves an others, and have fun connecting with other teens.
Giddy Up is provided at no cost to participants. Donations are always welcome and appreciated.
