Transitioning Families enjoys a close association with UpReach in Goffstown, New Hampshire. Through providing high quality equine assisted learning programs, UpReach strives towards excellence in its field. With the help of their equine partners, they are dedicated to enhancing quality of life for those they serve, by providing challenge, promoting independence, and celebrating success.
Transitioning Families also enjoys a close affiliation with The Red Barn in Leeds, Alabama. Their programs were inspired by the vision of Anita Cowart to create a place where those with burdened hearts could come to find faith, hope, and love while they worked with horses.
Each week over 100 children and adults visit the barn to work with our fabulous horses in order to strengthen their minds, bodies, and souls. Whether they are attending a riding lesson, camp, or educational activity, everyone entering the barn is welcomed, encouraged, and loved.
