HorsePower is a group program for children and youth ages 7-16. It is a progressive learning experience that includes 7 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.
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. Heavenward Farm and Horsemanship partners with City Gospel Mission in Cincinnati to provide urban kids this unique experience, and with Warren County Mental Health and Recovery Services.
Since the inception of this outreach program, we have served more than 250 children and teens from all over Greater Cincinnati and Warren County.
