HORSE SERVICE CLUB - for teens who like to help

A small group of teens work together to make life better for horses and the humans they help. Our horses help people in many ways at the farm, and sometimes by outreach programs to long term care facilities and schools. 

Teens can earn community service hours required for high school. This is a supportive, supervised setting and teens are provided safety training while good work habits are promoted. We have often provided reference letters to support job applications to reliable, good workers.

Type of work (depending on weather and the needs at the time) could be any of the following:

      Raking, cleaning brushes, weeding, shoveling manure; cleaning stalls, washing windows, vacuuming, wiping surfaces, grooming horses, etc.

Meeting the needs of the horses is a lot of work. We appreciate your help.

Hours are scheduled in advance. Please call Christine or Anne (613) 346-7777 to see if this welcoming environment is a good fit for the teen in your life. We will add you to the list to be notified of future scheduled work dates.



"THE COWBOY WAY"       An Equine Assisted Learning Curriculum

This "hands-on" program combines character education, literacy activities and horses!


Cowboy life-lessons provide experiential learning opportunities to practice :

  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Sportsmanship
  • Courage
  • Creative Thinking
  • Attitude
  • Good Choices

Working in small groups, children discover why these virtues were critical to a Cowboy's survival in the 1800s, and the value in their own daily modern lives. The lessons conclude with a writing activity to promote creative thinking and the works of art are showcased in their Cowboy Journals, as memory keepers!  We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with Parents, Educators and Counselors, to adapt the lesson plans as needed for any child. Scribes available.

Cost: $ 450.00       Wednesdays 3:30 to 5:30pm
