COLT Program to begin in January

We are excited about our new COLT program, designed to provide young people ages 14-18 with a variety of equestrian and leadership experiences—from horse care to teamwork to community involvement.  Elements of the program include horse care, leadership and teamwork, understanding disabilities, building both critical thinking and empathy, understanding the place of nonprofits in a community, and involvement in LoveWay programs and events.

The COLT program provides a great way to learn about horses, oneself and the various organizations at work in the community.  The COLT program follows the school year, with a new term in the fall, winter and summer.  There are 14 sessions per term.  COLT meets from 8-11 a.m. on Saturdays.  It will begin in January 2018.

There is currently a limit of 12 members per term.  Applicants must submit a completed application form, two completed reference forms and a non-refundable $10 application fee.  The forms are available below.

Application materials can be e-mailed to jonkk@lovewayinc.org or dropped off at or mailed to: COLT Program, LoveWay Inc., 45151 County Road 33, Middlebury IN 46540.
