In this innovative program, Indigenous youth from troubled or at-risk backgrounds learn to ride and care for magnificent horses at Cartier Farms in Prince Albert, SK. The United Church’s Indigenous Ministries Circle developed this program in response to the injustice and systemic racism these youth face. Elders and community leaders share traditional teachings and ceremonies, as well as teach vital communication and problem-solving skills. As each youth builds a rapport with their horse, they learn empowering lessons to help them succeed in the future.
Your Gift provides Indigenous youth with the opportunity to connect with their spirituality and to help them grow into strong, healthy Indigenous adults.
