We take a different approach to healing and learning!

 Our mission:


Step out of the classroom and into the corral with HorsePowered Reading - Math - Ponies & Preschool. Not only do we work on academic skills, children also work in the issues that keep them from learning in the classroom.


BRAVEHEARTS uses horses to interact with people (of all ages) in all walks of life in an outdoor arena with a certified mental health specialist.  Clients learn to view and experience life in a new, positive way. 

Connecting with horses to facilitate growth, learning and healing in individuals, families and groups

BRAVEHEARTS is a donation based 501(c)(3)non-profit organization and a component fund of the Kearney Area Community Foundation  in Kearney, Nebraska. 

We incorporate horses to create an environment where healing and transformations can take place.
