Armour of Skills Youth Program
Given a horse, youth are challenged to be creative, innovative, and work together to overcome hurdles and achieve goals.
Our future leaders will work in teams to achieve and challenge goals that can be linked to experiences in school, home and in the community. Our exercises teach non-verbal communication, assertiveness, creative thinking, leadership, and confidence, helping them make it in their every day lives.
Each week, participants will join us for an hour and be faced with a new set of challenges where they will need to make a plan, communicate clearly and work together to be successful and achieve the given goal.
All the exercises are done on the ground- there is no riding. That means no special equipment is required. Children need only to wear closed toed shoes and a bike helmet for safety.
Week 1 – Starting the Journey – Building healthy relationships
Week 2 – Silent communication – Body Language & Teamwork
Week 3 – Equine Charades – Active Listening & Respect
Week 4 – Building Blocks – Finding your voice
Week 5 – Match that horse – negotiation
Week 6 – You decide – Choices and Focus
Our programs create experiences that help inspire our youth to reach their full potential throughout life. Today's youth face many social pressures and challenges that these programs can help them overcome.
