Serenity Therapeutic Equine Open House

Posted: Updated:

Serenity Therapeutic Equine Program runs on a small scale but makes a big impact on the children and people they work for.

They offer three types of therapy for disabled residents in the area.

This week S.T.E.P. held a spring open house to make the staff and horses available for meeting.

Run by Kristi and Mark Shaefer, who both have bachelors and masters degrees pertaining to the field.

Emily Rodacker works for the North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities...

(Emily Rodacker, North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities) "The interaction with the horses is a really valuable learning lesson for people that are participating in the program. There's a lot that can be learned from this amazing animal so it's just very therapeutic and the sessions are six weeks long and they really get to bond with the horses. It's a very beneficial experience."

2014 Therapy sessions are beginning this Monday and will run through September.

The cost for the 6 week session is normally $240, but with aacquireddonations families only have to pay $90.
