a message from The herd



The Pony Express is a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring kids through the use of horses as teachers, healers and agents of change. Our programs teach kids how to build relationships that are grounded in trust, respect, communication, and team work.

In saying yes to a relationship with a 1,000-pound horse, kids learn the importance of establishing boundaries and making good choices that create leadership and life skills that transfer into real life. Horses provide kids with unconditional love and the chance to experience healthy, positive attachments that encourage and allow for transformational change to occur within a safe and healing environment.
