One Red Thread Equine Connection, Inc. is a ground-based program that focuses on connecting with horses through activities that help develop academic, social, emotional and life skills. There is no riding involved. Time spent on the ground with a horse is translated into a meaningful partnership and learning opportunity. By hosting Horse Powered Reading® literacy programs, book clubs, life skills activities, field trips, workshops, clinics, themed events and more, we provide endless possibilities to connect with horses and people.

Our groundwork activities with horses help children and adults of all ages and abilities develop creative problem solving, teamwork, responsibility, trust, respect, resilience and confidence. We also work on communication skills, leadership, non-verbal communication, setting boundaries and emotional regulation skills. Our certified staff and trained 
volunteers assist participants in a safe, accepting, fun environment.
