Who we are

Fulfilling Connections at Angels in Horse Hairs is a 501(c)(3) non-profit in Pennsylvania, and all donations are tax deductible.   All of our workshops/programs are based on the powerful and engaging research of the Search Institute.  For 50 years Search Institute, a non-profit, nonsectarian organization, has pursued this Mission: To provide leadership, knowledge, and resources to promote healthy children, youth, and communities.

Search Institute research provides information steeped in the latest wisdom of what's needed for our young to thrive.

What do we do?  

This is not about horsemanship, or horseback riding. All interactive activities with the horses are working with the horse as a partner. We  pair an individual with a  horse, usually of similar personality traits, and ask them to complete a task. Under supervision,  but not to interfere with the client's experience.

Fulfilling Connections at Angels in Horse Hairs offers a mobile program, in which members of a medical facility, schools, or institutions are engaged in our services at their facility.  Currently our services are posted for families on ABOARD, PaFamiliesInc, and Wraparound Services on an as needed basis.  Parents have been so excited about something like this for their children they usually comment - they didn't know this was available in our area. 


We were the first to offer behavioral and learning services through our equine facilitated learning  in Western Pennsylvania. We served NHS School,  and currently have individuals enrolled with ADHD, ADD, Asperger's, and trauma. It's our co-facilitation skills that makes all the difference!

Fulfilling Connections currently offers day camps and after-school workshops for all students including the autistim spectrum disorder.  All students learn to develop social skills: awareness of body language, identifying appropriate behaviors, awareness of others, listening skills, following directions, and having fun! They work at THEIR own pace, In a safe learning environment. 

We also work on life skills for at-risk youth, trauma victims, PTSD and meet the families goals, or medical professionals goals. Doctors, and therapists may prescribe a camp/workshop for their patients who need to boost their self-esteem, establish healthy boundaries or social skills. Fulfilling Connections charts each clients progress with a rubric generated to meet the goals of the client, therapist or family. 

Interestingly,  the same improvement in self-esteem applies to many adults  and the connection is beautiful!
Horses perform amazing work when it comes to teaching people! The more I observe, the stronger my passion grows in this field.  In fact, Our goal is to think in full circle terms, which includes the entire family to solve their most important needs. Other workshops include, care for the CareGiver and Trauma Support.  Professional Presentations are available on or off campus with a two week notice.
