LUCK Works.

LUCK is more than just a fun after-school activity (although it’s good for that, too!).


Students are administered the General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE) upon arrival to the barn and at the end of each LUCK program. Our results show that students may have felt a greater ability to overcome challenges after learning new skills and working through problems with horses. Of particular note were the increased scores in two areas:

  • Students scores increased 7 points between pre- and post-test scores for the statement: “I can remain calm when facing difficulties because I can rely on my coping abilities.”
  • Student scores increased 6 points between pre- and post-tests for the statement: “When I am confronted with a problem, I can usually find several solutions.”

LUCK students enjoy the program. It’s something they can look forward to!

  • “I liked learning about the ways you take care of a horse because I honestly thought they were easy–like a house pet. Seeing how they live makes you think about your own life.” –Kourtney
  • “I struggle with anger and explosive behavior but felt really calm and relaxed with the horses. I wish I could be with them all the time. I wouldn’t get into so much trouble.” –Mercy
  • “I enjoyed working with an animal I knew little about. It was unique and fun. It’s motivational. Riding the horse makes me want to do more.” –Deaja
  • “I can’t wait to work with horses again.” –Ike

Student Events

Our events allow students to learn valuable equine (equine means horse) related skills.

Events include:

Farrier clinic: a farrier keeps the horse’s feet, called hooves, in tip-top shape.

Veterinary clinic: a vet keeps the horse in a healthy condition.

Braiding clinic: braids in the horse’s mane and tail give them a professional appearance at shows.

Photography clinic: photographers are very well respected in the horse world – everyone wants more pictures of their horse!
