We Value the Participant.
A strong equine assisted development experience is based on interaction. At Spirit Song Youth Equestrian Academy, we value the personality, creativeness, and opinions of each individual, staff, and academy participant in accomplishing our vision and mission.
We Value the Potential and the Possibilities.
