Strategies for Sustainability

April 7th-9th 2022- Go here to register!

Strides to Success is proud to host this 3-day virtual workshop. For the last fifteen years, our colleagues have looked to Strides for processes and techniques that can be duplicated to develop sustainable businesses. Strides have shared programs that hold the highest of industry standards through our curriculum and now we will teach you how to market programs, and teach you how to put a price to your work that demonstrates the true value of your services, and how to develop a plan that ensures your sustainability for the future to come.  As data shows, it is not always easy to make a living in equine assisted work.  But, after this three-day experience, you will have a plan, the knowledge to build a program that meets a community need, know how to evaluate that program, and know how to keep your business from being vulnerable to unforeseen changes.   HORSEWORK™ is designed to help people achieve their dreams of operating an equine-assisted business in a way that honors their clients and horses.  Our methods are practical and while grounded in empirical evidence, are practical and easy to replicate.

It is our objective to give each participant a comprehensive “how-to” for each of the day’s intensive programs. This will include philosophy/ models, program forms, samples of lesson/session plans, evaluation methods, budgets, sample contracts, sample grants, and much more. You will learn how to design, how to sell, evaluate, and how to position yourself to deliver proven models. In addition, you will explore how to provide diverse services that can follow community funding that will support your center financially with earned income, grants or fundraising events. This workshop is perfect for administrators, board members, program directors, mental health and education professionals, equine specialists, and those that are in the dream stage. There will be both classroom and streaming arena work each day covering education, corporate, mental health, and coaching models.  Workshop participants will receive research for their local area of service and will work on developing a strategy that works for your center. You will leave with a new insight into their future, ready to hit the ground running!

Cost: $475 includes lunches & course materials sent to you.


Debbie Anderson and Blair McKissock with special guest speakers.
