Additional Programs we are, or will be, offering to help children succeed in life!

Animal Care, Ethics & Responsibility – teach every person who comes upon the property of G.E.R.T.H., the proper way to care for, treat and handle the horses and other animals on the property. With undertaking the responsibility of a pet, there are many aspects to ownership.
Red Ribbon Week – (October 23-31)discuss the effects of drugs on their lives and the lives of others if they choose to do drugs or get involved in drug related activities. Everyone takes a pledge against drugs, they sign a petition and get a ribbon and other RRW related items.
S.A.V.E. (Students Against Violence Everywhere - October 18-22) – discuss the effects of violence if they are the one with the anger problems and where it can lead [prison]. Everyone takes a pledge against violence, they sign a petition and get a ribbon and other S.A.V.E. related items. If they have anger problems, have them begin counseling and possibly attend an anger management program.
Escape School - Dignity Memorial Escape School is a nationally recognized abduction prevention program that empowers children and parents by providing them with ways to recognize, avoid or escape potentially dangerous situations. It also deals with internet abduction prevention which is so prevalent in today’s society.
Anger Management Class - Begins – 2x per year [or as is necessary] offer an anger management class for adults and children alike by Dr. Robert Bowers, Court approved Anger Management facilitator.
Six Pillars of Character – teach the children, as well as the adults, the six pillars of character, i.e. trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring & citizenship.
Food, Clothes & Toy Drives – teach everyone the importance of helping others in need by having them get involved in food, clothes and toy drives for outreach programs throughout the year.
Missions – teach the importance of missionaries and the work they do for God. Also, do fundraising and prayer sessions for missionaries.
Soldiers – teach the importance of what soldiers do for our freedom and our country. Also, do fundraising and prayer sessions for soldiers.
Collecting cans & can tabs for Ronald McDonald House - have a continual soda can collection to raise funds and can tabs to bring to the Ronald McDonald House located in Orlando, Florida.
This will help everyone realize the importance of recycling for our environment and also show them that, by recycling these cans, we can raise money to give to those in need. Also, by taking the can tabs off of the cans before recycling them, we can also do a charity outreach for the Ronald McDonald House.
Dance & Karate - We would hope to be able to offer a dance and karate class as we grow. Both of these activities help a child build confidence, teach them discipline and give them a sense of accomplish-ment. We would be open to other sport related activities if someone wanted to head up a program of basketball or football. These sports would also help a child build confidence, teach them discipline and help them be a team player.
Black Stallion Literacy Program - Upon moving to a larger facility, we would like to join up with the public school system, and private schools, to offer the Black Stallion Literacy Program. This is a Program that teaches children about horses and, at the same time, gets them excited about reading by giving each child The Black Stallion books to read.
