Stable Skills

Currently, a collaborative program between The Henrietta Weill Memorial Child Guidance Clinic and M.A.R.E., Stable Skills provides a unique approach to addressing mental health issues facing at-risk youth.  The Stable Skills program presents positive character traits such as respect, courage and leadership each session through interactions with the horse.  Discussions on trust, choices, body language, self-awareness, commitment, group dynamics, and attitude are all relative when working with horses.  Stable Skills participants complete the program with a sense of accomplishment and a new sense of awareness about how to relate and react to the world.
