Advanced Horsemanship

Advanced Horsemanship is an unmounted program that promotes the development of life and employability skills for individuals of middle school age and above to prepare them for their future!

Why Advanced Horsemanship?

Advanced Horsemanship empowers individuals of middle school age and above for their future, by providing the essential building blocks needed for future employment and independent living through experiences with their horses. Employment for individuals with disabilities is a critical part of community inclusion. Securing and maintaining employment requires life, social, and employment skillsets to be in place. These skills are essential for future independence and the empowerment of individuals with disabilities!

In an effort to serve students regardless of where they live or what school they attend, LoveWay also offers a home-based program for families outside of the school. There is often a waitlist for LoveWay services, and admittance isn’t necessarily on a first-come, first-serve basis. We intentionally place students to maximize the benefits received from our classes. Start the enrollment process below!
