Nizhoni Equestrian Program

Nizhoni Equestrian Program

The vision of the Nizhoni Equestrian Program is to foster personal growth through equestrian experiences. We aim to fulfill this vision by encouraging social and emotional development among youth & teen girls, through equestrian training. With roots that date back to 1924, the Nizhoni Program was re-established in 2013 to provide young women with positive and empowering experiences.

Today’s Nizhoni Equestrian Program is staged out of the Lincoln Hills Equestrian Center, complete with a full barn, stables, tack room, corral, 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 Program incorporates weekly instructional sessions over the course of the summer that provide participants with an opportunity to learn various equine care tactics and horseback riding skills, which translate into building life skills, emotional awareness and self-confidence.
