A three-day program run in groups of four where young people learn about themselves, communication barriers, safe boundaries and connection through horses and receive intensive case management from youth workers. Each young person is assigned a horse to work with for the three days; usually the horse chooses the young person. It is then an intense program for the next three days until the young people walk away as "Horse Whisperers". The program is based around Natural Horsemanship and is run by Equine Evolution. The third day consists of a game of liberty with the horse, where it simply chooses to trust and follow the young person's communication cues to lead them without any assistance through an obstacle course. This is an extremely powerful program for the participants and operates dependent on funding.
