EARTH DAY JAM
Earth Day Jam is a music and arts festival that benefits the LandTrust of Central NC and Saving Grace Farm, a therapeutic horsemanship center that provides healing services to children and adults. With a stellar line up of music and plenty of fun activities for the kids, EDJ brings the community together to celebrate Mother Earth.

Register now for Horsemanship Camps!
Horsemanship camps at Saving Grace Farm teach more than riding. We teach respect, mindfulness, responsibility and compassion. Our equine assisted experiential learning opportunities help children develop leadership skills, self awareness, and relationship skills. In addition to daily activities with the horses, we offer nature walks, arts and crafts, and journaling. Come horse around with us this summer.

Teambuilding and Leadership
“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” -Michael Jordan
Who better than to guide us through the art of become an effective team than the horses? The herd dynamic is natural, effective, mutually beneficial, and based on taking care of the needs of the group. When one succeeds, all succeed. Developing natural leadership and understanding how to function as an effective team are critical components whether your herd is a family, an organization, or a corporation. Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning for Teams and Leaders is a unique and powerful means of getting the most from yourself and your group.
“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” -Winston Churchill
It is not clear when people first recognized the therapeutic value of horsemanship, but it is known that therapeutic riding was used to rehabilitate soldiers injured in World War I. Whether or not those early pioneers recognized the powerful effects on mental and emotional well-being is not known, but today horses are being employed in a wide variety of therapeutic and educational applications. At Saving Grace Farm we collaborate with occupational and physical therapists, mental health professionals, and educators to offer the cutting edge of Equine Facilitated Therapeutic Services to our community.
