About the Connected Horse Program
The Connected Horse offers human-animal connection and engagement programs, tools and products that encourage and support individuals living with dementia diagnoses, care partners and professionals. It is focused on offering equine guided workshops that support people affected by dementia.
The 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, confidant and happy in the moment, but they also learn about self-compassion, stress reduction strategies and communication and awareness practices for every day use.
