About the event
The Mustang Ambassador Program (MAP) partners mustangs with area youth to provide a navigational tool (a map) for their lives and helps them learn the necessary leadership skills for success.
Youth learn foundational principles of leadership throughout the program; they learn responsibility and work ethic (self-management) through the care and feeding of the animals; they learn how relationships with the horses, which include respect and empathy, are necessary to build healthy relationships outside the arena; they learn about the importance of clear communication both with the horse and within human relationships; finally, they gain an understanding of the importance of healthy problem solving and working out issues they may have.
Students have an end-of-the-week performance evaluation in the form of a horse show where they show off their leadership skills as well as the horsemanship skills they have acquired during the week. The program teaches ground horsemanship skills as well as English and Western riding disciplines.
The equine leadership day camps are one week in length and include a performance on the last day. The equine leadership camps offer a great opportunity for students to connect, learn horsemanship and riding skills as well as learn horsemanship information.
Day Program that begins at 9:00 AM every morning and ends at 4:00 PM. The show for parents on Friday afternoon usually begins at 2:00 PM.
Cost: $450 early bird rate (before April 30); $500 regular rate
