Renew offers a variety of special programs to help people in our community live more abundantly.
By partnering with teachers and therapists from local schools, therapeutic riding lessons are available during the school day and incorporated as part of the class curriculum. To date, we have served Holland Christian Schools, Holland Public Schools, West Ottawa Public Schools, Zeeland Public Schools, Fennville Public Schools, Hamilton Community Schools, Spring Lake Public Schools, and the Ottawa Area Center.
Renew also offers programs to area group homes for adults to gain physical fitness, socialize, and learn new life skills. We maintain partnerships with homes such as Benjamin’s Hope Life Enrichment program, adults from Harbor House Ministries in Jenison, and other local group homes.
Renew welcomes school groups, group homes, and others to schedule a group outing or field trip to the farm. Groups are invited to join us for an interactive learning experience where various ground activities with the horses, like grooming and leading, will aid in learning and building upon communication skills, leadership skills, team building, and more.
We will be offering Equine Assisted Learning opportunities and Hoofbeats of Hope, and hosting speech camps on a select number of dates during 2023. Each camp is tailored to meet the needs of the specific campers while introducing and expanding knowledge of horsemanship.
Renew will be hosting a CTRI Prep Course on May 8-10, 2023. Click here for more information and instructions on how to register.
