Prospect Equine Program
Let’s Hit the Trails Together!
The Mark Wandall Foundation is proud to partner with Prospect Riding Center to provide monthly sessions of equine-assisted learning at the Prospect Ranch (located 34250 SR 70 East, Myakka City, FL 34251). This FREE program is open to children ages 5 and older who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or guardian.
This 90-minute program will help participants focus on healing, bonding and team building skills through:
- Equine interaction to build the natural human/animal bond
- Activities that build leadership
- Mastering confidence through horsemanship
Only 12 spots will be available each month, and participants WILL be riding horses! Closed-toe shoes are required, and guardians must stay on the premises during the program.
The 2022/2023 program will run from 11:30am – 1:15pm on the following Saturday dates:
