Stepping Forward – A program for first responders
Thanks to the Philadelphia FireFighters Local #22, children of our first responder community will be able to participate in a program called “Stepping Forward”. This unique Equine Facilitated Learning hands-on unmounted educational program designed to learn stress coping mechanisms in a fun and supportive learning environment. Stepping Forward program participants will be engaging in various activities throughout the Pegasus grounds while using the horse as a bio-feedback mechanism specifically designed to help reduce stress levels that a first responder family might experience while enjoying the benefits of being around our Pegasus therapy horses. Registration forms are required for all program participants. If you are a Local #22 member and would like to speak with a staff member about the benefits of Equine Facilitated Learning for your children or family, please contact Teresa@pegasusphilly.org for more information about this ground-breaking program.
