Description

Equestrian Bridges’ is a non-profit located in Fayetteville dedicated to building connections that empower Northwest Arkansas Families.


In Equestrian Bridges' Dream Catchers Program we facilitate Equine Activities and relationships with horses to develop language and communication while emphasizing relationship development and connections with peers and adults.  Clients learn to relate to others through Equine Activities and play.

Equestrian Bridges Therapists design activities that lay the foundation for higher-level academic and communication skills such as: joint attention, confidence, communication, engagement, shared imagination, turn-taking, listening skills, emotional regulation and flexibility.

The Dream Catcher's program is held once a week for 8 consecutive weeks. The clients are grouped by function and age. The groups typically consist of 4-6 so individual care can be assessed.


Starting June 5th and held every Monday for 8 weeks.  We need committed volunteers for this 8 week session.  You will be assigned to serve as a buddy for the same child each week. We also need substitutes, so if you cannot commit to the full 8 weeks and you are willing to fill-in if someone cannot make it then that would be so appreciated!

3:30-4:30 Set up & horse warm ups (no children in this hr)
