Over the past four summers, Detroit Horse Power has taught hundreds of students the joys of working with horses. These amazing animals instill powerful life lessons - perseverance, empathy, responsible risk-taking, confidence, and self-control (PERCS) - that our students carry with them everywhere that they go.
In 2018, we reached more students than ever. We are tremendously proud of our growth from 18 students in 2015 to over 100 students, many of whom are continuing to participate year-round in our PERCS after-school program.
This advanced cohort is getting introduced to all that the horse community has to offer - from rodeo to natural horsemanship to polo and more - while making connections between the social-emotional skills we develop in the horse setting and their everyday lives.
By serving these students through the school year, we solidify and continue building the character skills that students first learn iduring our summer horse camp. In our second year of programming, the results are clear: the higher dosage of exposure afforded to students we work with year-round makes a monumental impact on both retaining and utilizing the social-emotional skills we learn from horses.
As our program expands in scope and impact, we need your support to continue providing these opportunities to children who need them the most. We greatly appreciate any and every show of support, even if it's simply a like, share, and encouraging message for our students. However, below our a few examples of programmatic costs your donations go towards.
$150.00 - Sponsors a student for one month of after school programming.
