The size, movement, and multi-channel communication that horses provide often reaches people in ways that traditional human-centered learning methods sometimes cannot. Equine Centered Enrichment participants interact with horses in a relational, experiential learning context through being with them in groundwork and on them as partners. As ECE participants engage in controlled and safe activities with their equine partners, they experience not only growth of "self" but also increased awareness of "other": cornerstones of success and relationship growth.
We rehabilitate in-need horses; physical and diet problems, owner surrenders, SlCo WVC and Tooele Co rescued/seized horses, through training/ retraining, physical exercise and conditioning, natural care boarding, barefoot trimming, and dressage training with the help of people in the community.
The horses in our program are available for adoption and lease.
The Stable Place is proud to partner with the following organizations:

Equine Centered Enrichment
Equine Centered Enrichment is horsemanship through personal growth.
The Stable Place partners with residential rehabilitation facilities, day treatments, schools, and other programs in our community to provide both horsemanship, and EAGALA equine experiences. Equine Centered Enrichment participants learn about horse behavior and psychology, horseback riding, and horse care and management. By interacting with an equine partner in a way that emphasizes core human values, participants not only gain knowledge about horses but also develop life skills in the following domains:
Self-esteem and leadership
Respect and boundaries
Non-verbal communication and body language
Positive Relationship Building
