River Pines Horse Sanctuary is dedicated to providing a forever home to horses in need. We provide a natural, herd-based living environment offering safety, health enhancement, companionship and play. These horses then give back to the community through our equine facilitated learning program for humans by participating in resiliency training and social and emotional fitness education through equine guided activities.

Horses as Teachers
Horses navigate the stages of group development in ways similar to that of humans, yet much more quickly.  Their very existence depends on effective leadership and their ability to work together as a herd for their mutual benefit.  Horses provide a unique classroom for improving team performance, authentic leadership skills and personal growth.  In an equine facilitated classroom you can:
  • Energize your organization or relationship

  • Teach authentic community building skills

  • Inspire innovation and creativity​

  • Increase communication 

  • Raise self-awareness

  • Embrace diversity

  • Access emotional intelligence

  • Increase empowerment  & resiliency

  • Build trust, respect and collaboration
