About the event
Rainbow Wranglers is a 6-week program for LGBTQ+ youth aged 13-16 who are interested in learning more about horses and need support for depression and anxiety. Working with horses offers a unique opportunity to learn and grow because of how sensitive and responsive they are to subtle cues, body language, and emotions.
While working with our horse herd, the teens will learn how to identify, express, and regulate their emotions without judgment or pressure, and practice safe and sustainable ways to connect with themselves, others, and the world around them.
These skills and experiences have been shown to decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety as the teens learn that they can meet challenges effectively and take risks. As well as offering teens a chance to learn skills for working safely with the horses, the group will provide a safe place for individuals to connect with other teens in the LGBTQ+ community where they can be themselves more authentically and build lasting friendships, with horses and humans!
No horse experience needed.
