Imagine the difference a few hours of being unplugged could make in your child's life...

How is your child coping?

Are they spending too much time in front of screens?
Are their anxiety
levels skyrocketing?
Are they acting out in response to their frustration?
In these times of high-speed connection we often feel disconnected from our children. At Bella Terra Stables, we help your child unplug, step into nature, and connect with horses to bring peace, healing, and balance back into their lives.

How can

Bella Terra Stables

help relieve children's stress?

We find ourselves in a new world.  School is no longer the same, and even the way we interact with friends and family is now different. 


In 2020 and 2021 our children found themselves in front of a screen, within the confines of four walls, an average of 8 hours a day. 


Our office is not confined by walls.

Our horses don't judge.

Our farm offers kids a safe space.

Equine Assisted           Psychotherapy

(For ages 7-18)

Rather than the four walls of a therapist's office, Bella Terra Stables offers kids in crisis a unique therapeutic experience in nature with horses. Believing the best solution comes from within, equine-assisted psychotherapy uses a distinctive, experiential framework designed to allow kids the latitude to discover, learn, and grow through the relationship

they develop with our horses.

Our treatment team includes horses, a licensed Mental Health Professional, and a certified Equine Specialist. The team works together to create an emotionally safe space in which kids can explore lasting solutions to a range of personal challenges and crises.




(For ages 7 and up)

Science says people learn best by doing.  And using horses for group training and group recreational learning is revolutionary. Our unique team approach of equal partners, involves movement, physical activity, and relationship-building with the horses. This makes learning, exploration, and training more engaging and fun for people of all ages. Through interaction with the horses, we discover inner strengths, overcome perceived obstacles to change, and spark fresh insights leading to greater self-awareness and improved relationships.

Equine-Assisted Learning fuels our THRIVE program, wellness-based workshops, corporate training events, and Stories in the Stable.


Wellness Programs

(All ages)

Among the quietness of our rolling fields, beautiful trees, and gentle horses, guests will feel inspired to open up, engage, move, and respond. In this safe space, all become open to discovering resources and strengths that were not previously known. Our wellness programs focus on wellness for humans (Meditation with Horses and Qigong Infused Yoga), wellness for horses (horse retirement and repurposing), and wellness for nature (exploration of restoring and revitalizing the farm). 

All of our wellness programs serve as fundraisers to help support the care of our horses.
