What’s New at Stable Hands

Hoofbeats of the Heart Annual Fundraiser 
Yoga with Goats!
We are pleased to have Yoga with Goats coming to our “Hoofbeats of the Heart” fundraiser again this year.
All of the proceeds directly fund Stable Hands Equine Therapy Center.

Denise Edenhofer of Keepin Fit, LLC is hosting multiple classes.
These classes will roughly consist of a half hour of yoga practice with goats exploring around. It will then be followed by fifteen minutes of goat play time, where you will be able to get your picture taken with the goats and enjoy their presence.

Please be aware that goats like to nibble, therefore try not to wear anything shiny or appealing to goats.
Arrive with time to hydrate and sign a waiver for participation.

Cost: $10 per class

Stable Hands’ program for Veterans is called V.A.S.T. (Veterans Assisted Sports Training). Therapeutic horses are partnered with Veterans for them to gain self-understanding and emotional growth. V.A.S.T. recognizes the bond between animals and humans, and sees the potential for emotional healing that can occur when a relationship is formed and nurtured.

The Stable Hands HarryV.A.S.T. Program offers horse-based activities to enhance the recovery from physical, emotional, social and cognitive struggles that veterans may face in civilian life. We offer different levels of instruction to guide Veterans through the program.  For more information, contact Diane Abitz, Executive Director, at 715-359-6046 or dabitz@stablehandstherapy.com  To see a copy of our  brochure, click here: V.A.S.T. info
