EQUINE EDITION WORKSHOP:

 

C.A.E.’s Arts-N-Motion: Equine Edition eight-week workshop was designed to encourage our participants to create their own pathways in life, and to effectively navigate a pathway that connects education and employment to achieve a fulfilling, financially-secure and successful career within the equine industry and beyond. According to The Impact of Equine Activities on Youth Development study conducted by the Pennsylvania State University Department of Dairy and Animal Science - working with horses help develop positive values and life skills that are transferred to a young person’s daily life. The study found that 25 percent of youths’ life skills development are attributable to their development of horsemanship skills.

AIM's Equine Edition  workshop is a creative and fun-filled holistic approach to exposing underserved youth (Grades 6+) to various career opportunities within the equine industry, while incorporating social and emotional development, health, wellness and fitness education for the betterment of the communities they live and work in.  

Weekly equine lessons will instruct students on how to handle, care for, groom, breed, tack up, and ride gentle and well-trained horses. Lessons will also include unique and engaging activities with horses that incorporate physical fitness training, and the reinforcement of life skills such as communication, confidence, emotional identification and regulation, teamwork, trust, respect, responsibility, integrity, and perseverance.

 

Eligible students will be encouraged to join the interscholastic equestrian association in preparation for equestrian competitions. This allows students to have an opportunity to earn scholarships toward their college education through awards in competition and through sportsmanship activities.
