Our Programs

Main Stay’s mission driven programs can be the key to open the door of possibility for our clients. Our programs empower children as young as 3, to adults in their 90s, to reach their highest potential through the healing power of the horses, animals, and nature. Meeting the individualized needs of our clients is fundamental to our mission. Each day we work to find the key to help someone unlock their own potential. The horses, small animals and the land itself are all powerful catalysts for change. Change can be as simple and profound as a first step.
