Juicey News: Horse Whispering Youth Program Helping Kids Learn Essential Life Skills

By Micaela Aboody

Most of us talk to our pets and animals from time to time, however the Horse Whispering Youth Program (HWYP) helps kids learn essential life skills when interacting with the horses.

Co-founder of The Horse Whispering Youth Program, Glenys, explains the program started almost 14 years ago when she met Sue.

“[Sue] introduces them to their horse-o-nality – so their own little personality – and she matches [the kids] up with a horse that’s got the opposite personality and then she teaches the kids how to breath, to relax and reduce their anxiety,” she said.

Recently, HWYP have created a challenge with Super Annuation Advice Australia for businesses to sponsor a horse.

“Super Annuation Advice Australia are sponsoring a horse, our little pony Larry,” she said.

To find out more go to HWYP.
