We start off Sibshops in 2019-2020 with a fun morning at Beaming, Inc, a equine therapeutic facility. Normally Beaming focuses their expertise on child and adults with disabilities, but this morning will be just for kids ages 6-12 who have siblings with disabilities.

In order to participate, a Beaming Participation Form is REQUIRED which includes a signature and stamp from child’s physician.  Click  Beaming Sibshop Participation form.

One of the goals of Sibshops is to help young siblings be informed about disabilities. This Sibshop will help siblings be better informed about how horses can benefit people with disabilities and encourage positive results. Who knew learning could be so much fun?

Deadline to register is August 30, email [email protected] or register/pay online
