We understand that working with horses provides many social and emotional benefits. Our equine programs give students opportunities to learn about all aspects of horse care and riding, incorporated with our curriculum that is based on the five values integral to living a 5 Star life: 

Respect: Treating others the way you want to be treated.
Responsibility: Taking ownership of our past choices, our current reality, and our future dreams.
Integrity: Who you are when no one is looking; the real you.
Sacrifice: Giving up something now for something better later on; Giving up something I want to do to help someone else live a 5 Star life.
Courage: Having the strength to do what is right, rather than what is popular or comfortable.
