Discover the Magic of “Into the Woods” 

An Equine-Guided Journey Reconnecting Youth with Nature

Are you ready to dive into an epic adventure?

In today’s fast-paced world, young people face unprecedented challenges, from academic stress to digital overwhelm and social disconnect. The global pandemic has only amplified these issues, leaving many youth feeling isolated and anxious. “Into the Woods” offers a unique solution!

Picture serene forest walks that calm the soul and art sessions that ignite creativity. Imagine mindfulness practices like yoga, meditation, and journaling with horses grazing nearby, nurturing self-awareness and inner peace. Our equine friends will join us throughout, providing unique interactions (without riding!) that cultivate compassion, empathy, and leadership skills. These experiences aren’t just activities—they’re pathways to personal growth and mental wellness.

“Into the Woods” is a new program offered in partnership with the Second Chance Cheekye Ranch. This program isn’t just an escape from reality; it’s an opportunity for youth, aged 13-17, to rediscover themselves and cultivate resilience for life’s challenges.

Research continues to demonstrate the profound benefits of reconnecting with nature and horses. From reducing stress and boosting mood to enhancing overall well-being, time spent in nature and with horses has a powerful impact on mental and emotional health. “Into the Woods” leverages this knowledge through equine guided activities designed to help you discover and harness your inner strengths.

Join us at the Second Chance Cheekye Ranch for a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Whether you seek to build confidence, improve mental wellness, or simply reconnect with nature, “Into the Woods” offers a holistic approach to well-being that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and inspired.

Take the first step towards a brighter, more resilient you. Embrace the power of nature and horses and join us as we head “Into the Woods” this summer.
