X-treme HorsePower at Heavenward Farm
HorsePower is a group program for children and youth ages 7 to16. It is a progressive learning experience that includes 6 sessions on alternating weekends. Each child is matched with a horse or pony and a volunteer staff person for the Season. Commitment, cooperation, respect, trust, hard work and healthy interaction are key values in this program. Participants learn grooming, handling, and riding skills, along with understanding about horses. There are openings for approximately 35 kids each year. Registration opens in February for the Spring/Summer Season and in June for the Late Summer/Fall Season. We offer a sliding fee scale so that cost is not a barrier. Some scholarships are available. Since the inception of this outreach program, we have served more than 300 children and teens from all over Greater Cincinnati and Warren County.
