Building Internal Resilience Through Horses

Building Internal Resilience Through Horses is a foundational program at The Mane Intent, informing all current offerings at the farm. This was a multi-sector community-based collaboration between Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre (KSAC), The Mane Intent, and Trent University.

All collaborating partners provided in-kind contributions that supported project activities. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) provided significant funding from October, 2016 to March, 2021 through the Supporting the Health of Survivors of Family Violence Investment.
