Giddy-Up and Grow (previously known as the Youth At-Risk Program)
This five day summer program immerses clients ages 10-14 in a complete outdoor learning experience. This program mixes horseback riding with animal husbandry, gardening, reading and writing to expose young people to new experiences, to provide opportunities for skill development, and to reinforce academic skills. Typically, clients participating in this program are considered youth at-risk, who benefit from getting outdoors in a farm environment.
Windrush also offers opportunities for specially designed unmounted morning programs, typically for groups. Do you have a group interested in learning about horse behavior, grooming, leading, or what horses eat? Do you have a group that would benefit from learning about non-verbal communication skills, self-care, or teamwork? We can help design a program that will work best for you! Clients from Swampscott High School, Bedford and Boston VA, EMARC, and various day programs have all done a variety of morning programs with us in the summer.
