16 February @ 9:00 am - 17 February @ 4:00 pm
Lead-Up Workshop – 2 days
Lead-Up’s goal is to reduce violence by creating peaceful leaders through workshops with horses. The participants, aged 15 to 21, are welcomed into a compassionate and non-judgmental environment, far removed from the violence, abuse, addiction and neglect they often experience at home.
The Lead-Up® program is based around workshops with horses in which participants are introduced to humane ways of handling and interacting with horses. Participants discover non-violence and non-aggression for themselves through interactions with horses and principally through the experience of Join-Up® with a horse, the non-violent training system designed by Monty Roberts, world-renowned horseman and author of The Man Who Listens to Horses.

Horses 4 Hope is committed to providing the ground-breaking Lead-Up program (free) to those who need it most – at-risk youth (aged 15 to 21) from economically disadvantaged communities and heads of child-only households.
Unfortunately, the event is not open to the public. But we’d be grateful if you could lend a hand.
