Healing, learning & growing through experiences with horses

To ensure the safety of our participants, volunteers and staff we have implemented COVID19 procedures according to state guidelines.  

New Opportunities....

We are very grateful for the many unexpected blessings that have come to us during this difficult time.  At the same time we are saddened that we are still unable to reunite with our therapeutic riding students who we miss so very much. We have come to the difficult decision that we will not resume our Therapeutic Riding program at this time and plan to re-evaluate in 2021. We are absolutely committed to keeping our participants safe at all times.


We have been exploring new possibilities of how Courageous Connections might help our community members navigate through this challenging time.  We believe with all of our hearts that now more than ever people need an opportunity to connect with nature, horses and themselves.  With that in mind we are thrilled to announce that our Equine Encounters program has received the ‘essential service’ designation from the Dept of Health of Snohomish County!  We couldn’t be more delighted to provide people of all ages with an opportunity to be with a horse and to re-discover the peace and ease that lives within themselves.
