Teens InBalance

Connection, Purpose, Peace

P1010578All of the challenges and transitions of adolescence leave many teens struggling to develop a healthy sense of personal identity and independence. Teens InBalance is designed to provide teens with a safe place to build upon their strengths and foster self-acceptance. Through engaging in activities and interacting with peers, teens learn about healthy boundaries, gain understanding about the interrelationship between thinking, feeling, and behaving, develop coping skills, and gain skills to manage conflict.

In this fun, supportive and interactive environment, teens will gain tools to:

  • Appropriately manage and express feelings
  • Improve confidence and self-esteem
  • Handle stress and cope with transitions
  • Deal with expectations
  • Cope with peer pressure

Our Experiential Equine Assisted Growth & Learning Groups provide a unique approach to wellness. At the ranch, teens are unplugged from technology and engage in a variety of activities designed to help them communicate with others, recognize social cues, and build self-confidence by overcoming age appropriate challenges.  Activities range from learning how to identify and share feelings to haltering and walking a donkey successfully through an obstacle course, or working together to get a “resistant and shy” horse over a “hurdle” (such as anger or frustration) without a lead rope.


Mondays 3:30 pm – 5 pm
Ages 13-16

Our groups are limited to 6 participants
$85 per session

    ““I was surprised at how the horses could teach us about our work place behaviors and attitudes. From the experiences at Stand InBalance I have built confidence in myself and learned the power of trust. The feedback from the horses was amazing and I learned how I need to stay focused and leverage my strengths to increase my sales. I’m excited to take what I learned back to work!”

    ~ Dana (Sales Representative)
