Celebrate Your Inner Cowboy/Cowgirl Through Experiential Programs Rooted in Life Skills DevelopmentRanch Life 101, co-facilitated by early education specialist Chris Ciepiela and Eagala advanced certified equine specialist and Berkshire Horse Works founder/Executive Director Hayley Sumner, is an authentic ranch adventure that provides a platform in nature for life skill development as children engage in developmentally appropriate experiences.
Through the powerful interaction with horses in both ground-based and mounted activities, participants will learn how to develop relationships with the herd of horses and donkeys which, in turn, will grow their own ability to apply new skills to experiences outside the ranch.
In addition to the Eagala- based activities, children will have the opportunity to learn basic riding skills, burn some energy doing yoga or trail walking with their equine partners, practice team building while engaging in ranch “chores”, and use their imaginations and creativity during innovative nature- based arts and crafts. Practicing patience, growing friendships, building trust, developing confidence, and cultivating responsibility, mentor/mentee skills and respect will all be explored.
Structured for all ages and abilities, Ranch Life 101 is a unique opportunity to learn and play side by side with the beautiful therapy herd of horses and donkeys.101 Patton Rd, Richmond, MA

Our small groups (eight participants and two instructors) travel to some of the most beautiful places in the Northeast. Using breathtaking wilderness classrooms, our participants return from our programs knowing that the confidence, strength and friendships they developed will help them meet any challenge on the trail, in the classroom, or back home in their communities.544 East Street, Mt.
