  • Charitable Scholarships for Angels

Cavalia ANGELS give charitable scholarships to participants from Cavalia Stables’ Equine Assisted Activities (EAA) based on economic need and/or disability-specific needs. The EAA program is also partially subsidized by our foundation to be more affordable for all individuals with a special challenges or disabilities.

As (in process to be) member center of PATH International, Cavalia Stables offers professional Equine Assisted Activities to area youth and adults.  This program offers many different activities involving the horse as a partner, either under saddle or on the ground.  The Equine Assisted learning process is planned and guided, with the goal being to increase the participant’s social competence and positive behavior.

Horses are congruent; they provide immediate meaningful feedback of non-verbal behavior.  In an EAA setting, the participants attempt to manage and direct their own behavior to evoke desirable responses from the horse.  The participants learn to recognize and give non-verbal communication cues to their horses through pressure, release and posture. This process allows the participants and facilitators to reflect on their behavior and the horse’s response through thoughts, feelings and communication skills and then apply these skills to a human partner.  The program is setup to improve self and social awareness, personal responsibility, goal directed behavior, self-management, communication skills, and positive behavior.  We have on staff a Counselor in Mental Health and Learning and a Licensed Registered Riding Instructor (Path Certified instructor) overseeing these programs.

Other Programs:

  • Community Outreach:

Cavalia Stables Foundation partners with existing programs such as Church Groups, School Groups and others to provide a hands-on one-day educational program in basic horse care to enhance the benefits of horses in the community.
