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.








 An interactive equine assisted parenting class allowing parents to build better a relationship with their children. Skills to include: conflict management and communication 


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. 

Summer Programs

Because of a grant from the Snow Redfern Foundation, we have expanded our summer programs to include preschool through 11th grade.

We were able to purchase some fun items - such as t-shirts, water bottles, new (much needed) props and other items.  This helps offset the cost of the programs.

Thank you Snow Redfern Foundation!

Thank you to the Snow Redfern Foundation

for helping with the cost of the Equine Empowerment Programs.  

Did you know that the actual cost to participate in our equine-assisted activities is $60 per hour per person? 

However,  thanks to our generous donors - like you -  it is now possible for everyone to reap the benefits of interacting with horses  regardless of income level. 

We take a different approach to healing and learning!
