The Equine Experience

Interested in learning more about horses or just want to spend some time with them? CHAPS is now offering a program for individuals who are interested in spending time with our therapy horses. The Equine Experience is available for individuals or small groups, ages 7 and up. Potential topics include: equine education, painting with the horses, learning to braid and groom the horses.

The possibilities are endless!

We welcome individuals regardless of their abilities. We want this to be a time for you to relax, unwind, learn, and have fun with our horses. Some session examples are listed below.


Equine Education

You will learn basic horsemanship skills, including groundwork, proper grooming skills and techniques, horse body language, and much more.

Paint with a Horse

In a variety of different sessions, you will have the opportunity to paint a picture of any horse you choose, have the horse paint with you, and even paint on the horse itself!




Work with a professional braider to learn various types of braids used on horses, during shows and for other purposes. Practice these braids on a variety of horses available for use.
