StarBrite Stables Equestrian Foundation works to make a positive difference for children living with social, emotional, or physical challenges including terminal illness. This stable uses the powerful bond that can form between horse and child to help heal a child in crisis. StarBrite believes the relationship a child can cultivate with a horse will provide more self-esteem, sense of empowerment, responsibility, independence and much more. The challenges the children at Starbrite face vary widely, and there are programs tailored to suit any child's needs. They offer an In the Saddle program, with one child, one horse and one mentor, as well as a Team Rehab program where children work in teams doing ranch chores and caring for horses in need of rehabilitation, training or attention. Also they offer a StarBrite Little Tails program where kids will be introduced to miniature horses that are easier to work with for children with restrictive physical capabilities.
StarBrite organization works with children ranging in age from 6 to 18 years old. This program will help teach them horsemanship skills, leadership skills as well as independence through working with the horses and will gain an understanding of the importance of community contribution.
