The Connected Horse Project offers pioneering equine guided workshops for people living with early stage dementia and their care partners.
Every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops dementia. This disease touches all of us. Until there is a cure we need more programs that support people living with dementia and their care partners.
The Connected Horse workshops provide the opportunity for people living with early stage dementia and their care partners to be together as they experience non-riding activities with horses. The power of the human-horse connection helps participants not only feel relaxed, confident and happy in the moment, they also learn about self compassion, stress reduction strategies and communication and awareness practices.
