Powerful meaning...

Horses can teach us ways to heal and grow in countless ways. Their non-judgemental disposition can teach us valuable lessons, new ways of healing and learning. Horses can bring a connection between teacher/counselor and peer interaction by supporting self-awareness and empowerment for a safer school environment.

aired September 7, 2022









During this segment YEEHAAA focuses on:

  • The crisis Utah has with our youth taking their own lives as young as 10 years old.

  • Interacting with a horse creates that awe-ha moment that increases personal growth. When you have horses as a co-facilitator, you start to develop a relationship through the activities.

  • This creates a positive environment between student-to-student and teacher-to-student for team-building skills, empathy, boundaries, and personal growth. Research shows positive relationships can prevent bullying and suicide.
