Dementia Workshops

Kids & Horses partners with Connected Horse to offer powerful workshops to individuals with early-stage dementia and their care partners. Horses mirror people’s emotions. We use this mirroring to help participants: learn stress reduction strategies, reduce feelings of depression and anxiety, improve quality of sleep, and provide greater awareness of the moment. The workshops are 2.5 hours, once a week for 3 consecutive weeks. No prior experience with horses is necessary to participate. Participants engage with horses from the ground; there is no riding. Participants must be ambulatory and willing to participate as a pair in the workshop.
