The mission of the Nizhoni Equestrian Program is to foster personal growth through equestrian experiences. We aim to fulfill our mission by providing youth & teen girls with life-enhancing confidence through equestrian training. With roots that date back to 1924, the Nizhoni Program was re-established in 2013 to provide young girls with positive and empowering experiences.
Today’s Nizhoni Equestrian Program is staged out of the Lincoln Hills Equestrian Center, just outside of Nederland, CO, complete with a full barn, stables, training area, tack room, and access to a variety of trails. The Lincoln Hills Equine Center allows for a safe and comfortable environment for youth to interact with horses. The Nizhoni camp encompasses a number of instructional sessions over the summer that provide participants with the opportunity to learn various horseback riding and equestrian care tactics that translate into valuable life skills and self-confidence.
Lincoln Hills Cares sponsors a number of girls from diverse backgrounds to participate in this personalized program to foster confidence and personal growth in young women.
