Greener Pastures

Cognitive Program
  • Description

    Greener Pastures also provides a home for horses that would be euthanized. Instead, the horses are fostered at the correctional facility. These horses are taught a life of leisure, as many of them are retired racehorses. This program enables offenders to give back to the community while gaining vocational knowledge that they can use upon release. Offenders gain self-esteem, self-control, and focus on how they act towards and react to others.
