What Is Windhorse?

2015 Summer Camp

A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, Windhorse provides experiential equine-assisted learning (EAL) opportunities that promote the development of life skills through guided interaction with horses. Windhorse promotes these skills by teaching horsemanship and helping participants develop a relationship and a partnership with the horse. They learn about horse behavior, leadership structure and non-verbal communication as they halter, groom, lead, longe and play with horses on the ground and eventually in the saddle.

An all-volunteer organization, Windhorse Equine Learning is in its fourth year of operation and has served close to 100 kids in its school-year programs at Eagle Mount, and through its summer camps in partnership with the YMCA and Montana State University.
