Success at Cadence is measured by achieving personal goals and having fun! Whether it’s touching a horse’s muzzle; mounting for the first time; gaining a horse’s cooperation; riding while weaving around cones; increasing mobility or improving verbal skills; improving team building and leadership capabilities; or developing mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance skills – our clients gain the self-esteem and skills needed to drastically improve their lives. The relationship that occurs between horse and client overcomes debilitating conditions and fears, and opens the floodgates to independence, confidence, life satisfaction and freedom.
Cadence has worked with individuals, families, groups, and communities. Our clients have included Southern Ute Tribal Courts Family Support Division, Southern Ute Community Action Programs (SUCAP), Southern Ute Voc-Rehab, La Plata Youth Services, the Southern Ute Boys & Girls Club, Peaceful Spirit Addiction Recovery Center, Community Connections, Toadlena New Mexico School System, Upward Bound, Escalante Middle School, Florida Mesa Elementary, and more.
Cadence has two programs that serve our veterans. Horses for Heroes is a Therapeutic Riding program, and Back in the Saddle is an Equine Assisted Therapy program provided through our partnership with Therapeutic Experiences (TherEx). We believe it is our duty – as the people whose lives, liberties, and freedoms our veterans have protected – to show our gratitude and understanding of the sacrifices they have made. We have benefited greatly from their commitment to our country and we need to return the favor by providing them with the tools they need to step into the future with self-respect and dignity. They, too, have the right to live lives that are joyous, satisfying and free.
