Description

Peaceful Acres Mission: "To provide a therapeutic environment for both horses and people to resolve issues related to grief, loss and trauma, and to regain strength and trust."

We are an Equine Rescue and Sanctuary that offers programs with at-risk youth, breast cancer survivors, and adults overcoming trauma, loss and grief. We are an EAGALA certified (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) non-profit organization who utilizes our rescued horses as co-therapists in our programs.

We offer an internship experience that can be for someone with minimal experience with horses or one with advanced experience. At our facility you will learn: daily nutritional needs, daily care needs, behavioral rehabilitation of a rescued equine, and the process of training our rescued equines. We have several young horses that are in training to become a riding horse in hopes to find a new forever home.

This can be a part-time or full-time internship, full-time prefered.
