Map & Directions
ANT programs utilize a unique combination of experiential learning methods, incorporating various equine, mental health, and education models. This approach sets ANT apart from other approaches & interventions.
School is the largest challenge in Kiley's* life. With learning disabilities and anxiety, school is incredibly challenging and tiring. Friday at ANT has been such a bright spot to look forward to after the school week.
We have seen significant changes at school, in our family, and in Alex's* social skills since ANT. *Name changed
Ben* has become more patient and understanding. His whole way that he deals with issues has changed. No more outbursts, and yelling; he will now just go to his “safe” spot until he's cooled down. *Name changed
She has been more willing to talk about her feelings instead of storming off. She is willing to communicate effectively.
Between the Fall and Winter session, Alex* tested an entire grade level higher in both reading and math. This was over a 3 month period. Her anger, frustration, and distrust of adults has decreased significantly. She is more centered, in control of her body, breaths and thinks before acting. She is really at a turning point. *Name changed for privacy
She is so full of joy getting an opportunity to work and be with animals. She feels more herself and forgets about anxiety. I love getting the excited re-cap about her time at ANT! ANT has given [my daughter] confidence and pride in working with animals outside school.
I learned that I need to tell my horse what I need, not expect her to know.
It is a carefully seasoned experience, built to meet special needs in a very special (and effective) way. Everyone at ANT is working towards the goal of a better community, where people can improve their own lives. Amazing tools are cleverly employed, suffering is lovingly witnessed, and emotional health & improvement is bred in the bone.
