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. 

Our Mission:

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 located in Kearney, Nebraska. 

Our focus is the helping participants develop the skills needed to overcome social, emotional, behavioral and educational challenges in life while interacting with horses.








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