We are still meeting out in nature with fresh air and freedom to connect at a distance
For Equine sessions at Mckittrick Farm:
Due to the fact that these sessions are outdoors and socially distanced (6ft apart), masks are not required. However if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, feel free to do so.
Please sanitize your hands with the hand sanitizer available upon arrival. Please wait by the stair leading into the red barn and I will come get you when your session time starts.
During sessions, we are practicing social distancing by staying at least 6 feet apart
The barn staff is taking all necessary precautions to keep the barn as clean as possible.
Thank you for your understanding of these procedures as we navigate this unprecedented time to the best of our ability!
Collaboration is key to success! PRC works together with a Licensed therapist to bring you Equine Assisted Psychotherapy at Mckittrick Farm, Pelzer, SC (just a stones throw from Happy Cow Creamery)
