SCOUTS & CLUBS

Learn and Earn Badges 
We offer the opportunity for local troops of all abilities to visit Mane Stream with the
goal of completing specific badges (Junior Horseback Riding badge or the Cadette Animal Helper badge).  

They learn horse anatomy, horse care and safety, how to make horse treats, grooming, tacking and can take a short riding lesson with our PATH certified instructors. Scouts also learn how horses help people emotionally and how they help people with
disabilities.

SENIOR CITIZENS

Make Connections & Create Joy
Community members from local Adult Day Centers and Senior Living Groups enjoy visiting the farm where they spend time in
the barn grooming and getting to know the horses.  At each visit their confidence increases. They even enjoy learning how
to lead some of the horses inside our arena. 

Do you work with a group of seniors? Contact us to set up an outing. With our indoor facility, your outing won’t be rained out!

Community Based Instruction (CBI) is educational instruction in naturally occurring community environments providing students “real life experiences”. The goal is to provide a variety of hands-on learning opportunities at all age levels to help students acquire the skills to live in the world today. 

We focus on engaging students in education experiences along with functional job training skills through interactive activities with horse care, horsemanship and barn management.

Session lengths may vary from 6-10 weeks, and are conducted in either individual or group settings and led by a collaborative effort with Mane Stream Staff and the school teachers/advisors or personal aids.
