Teens with Horses

Equine Facilitated Learning, Coaching, and Healing

Programs are Held at The Healing You Sanctuary in Spokane, Washington

​Dealing with overwhelming emotions, such as anger, loneliness, insecurity, depression, or anxiety is tough no matter what age you are. In adolescence it is harder.

Group Activities Allow Teens to Experience:
  • cooperation with others

  • set goals

  • develop compassion

  • have the experience of belonging to a group

  • being accepted just as they are

The Best Introduction For Teens:
  • Private Sessions create a space where teens get to spend time with the Horses in a nonjudgmental atmosphere.

  • Learn where to find the grooming kits to begin grooming their horse independently.

  • In other activities teens will learn to stay focused and on task, and deal with emotional energy that may arise. Horses are wonderful at reflecting the emotional energy coming from a person. Teens learn to "listen" to the horse's response.

While having fun!

These are hands on, non-riding programs, no experience needed. All programs are facilitated by Gloria Lybecker and her trained assistants unless otherwise indicated.​​​

Teaching basic emotional health constructs.
  • Boundaries - Respect is the hub of all interactions in a healthy relationship. Without it, there is no real intimacy or connection.

  • Responsibility - The cost of privilege.

  • Relationship Skills - Verbal and non-verbal communication is used to reveal that a person desires to establish or maintain a relationship with another being. It is only as one has a clear understanding of physical, emotional, sexual, and spiritual boundaries that one can achieve satisfying and nurturing relationships with one's self, family and friends.

  • Empathy/ Choices & Consequences - Many people are often unaware that they are even making choices, let alone understanding the impact their choice will make upon their life. When a person experiences the accurate reading of his/her feelings and a responsible response from another being (including a horse), validation, significance, and empowerment result.

Join us to have lots of fun, self-discovery, and healing.
