Horses as Healers, at Miwok Stables in Mill Valley

NOTE: The spring session has been cancelled. We hope to be able to offer this program again in the fall.

This program will be held on four Tuesdays, May 5 - 26, 1:00 - 2:30 pm.

Horses as Healers is an extraordinary 4-week healing program for those who have completed cancer treatment. Patients learn to groom, tack up, and ride horses under the guidance of Miwok Stables' equestrian staff and trained volunteers. Watch the video from the 2019 pilot series.

Each person learns new horsemanship skills and works at his or her own pace, interacting with one of four especially gentle therapy horses. Participants report that the time is extremely relaxing and rewarding. Many participants benefit from the incredible emotional healing power of horses in one of Marin’s most beautiful outdoor settings.

This is a Miwok Stables program for UCSF cancer survivors (post-treatment). All participants will be required to sign a liability waiver.

This program is limited to four participants.
Please only register if you expect to be able to attend all four sessions.
You must have your own transportation to/from Miwok Stables (not accessible via public transit).
