Community In Connection.

Community In Connection is an initiative to bring people together in a safe, substance-free environment. Our Healthy Lifestyle Programming is a great way to support each other, learn some things and have a great time doing it. You may even get a little Covid stress relief and exercise.

Horses for a Healthy Lifestyle

The Program:

Horses for a Healthy Lifestyle (HHL), a component our Community in Connection, programming is an equine interaction program in partnership with Mane Stream of Oldwick, NJ. This free program gives participants the opportunity to relate to each other while partnering with horses in a safe and natural environment under the guidance of EAGALA certified professionals.

The Benefits:

Throughout the HHL experience, participants will begin to rebuild an alliance of trust, while learning new skills and improving overall wellbeing. The connection made between participants and the horses is a powerful experience that enhances self-awareness and promotes growth. Horses provide a natural way to build trust and give honest feedback regarding personal feelings and emotions that may not otherwise surface.
