Generation Farms is well known for our work with horses and people to create healing opportunities. Many children come to Generation Farms for counselling and support. People come from across Canada to learn the Generation Farms Approach. What may not be well known is that our work is not just with horses. As we move into our 19th year of programs we have developed diverse skills and expertise. Here is a short list of things to know about Generation Farms:
NATURE BASED AND WILDERNESS PROGRAMS
RIDING AND HORSEMANSHIP
Simple experiences can be naturally therapeutic.
There is calm at Generation Farms. Time to pause and to listen to the eagles and the wind in the trees. In this tranquil environment people come to rediscover their natural ability to heal and to experience themselves at their best.Some come to Generation Farms for the recreational benefits of riding and connecting with horses. Others come to heal deep trauma, improve relationships or develop confidence. A strong base of common values and consistent philosophy runs through all programs based on principles of connection and self-regulation.
There is a need for programs for people who do prefer or benefit from an alternative to traditional approaches. Our well-trained and experienced professional staff have chosen to use their talents to work in this organically healing way.

See the Globe and Mail story "A horse named Fira helped me heal from emotional trauma" by Rebecca Garber about her experience at Generation Farms. It is in our NEWS section or follow the link.
Horses have a powerful role in assisting people in feeling alive in their lives. Horses live in the present moment, highly aware of their surroundings, without the ability to ruminate about the past or worry about the future. They fully use all of their senses, including their ability to read the inner state of another. They are social and respond warmly to humans who are in touch with their emotions. Their attentiveness to the present state of a human has the capacity to heal old wounds through the bond of connection in the here and now. Read More...
