Our organization has the following policies and procedures in place pertaining to foster, overflow and/or satellite facilities: Not Applicable. Our organization does not use foster, overflow and/or satellite facilities

Summary of organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, and capabilities to meet the goals, including its long-term plans to sustain its programs:
Mane Stream's main goal is to provide high quality and meaningful programs, using horses, to special needs children and adults. Strategies to meet this goal include: specially trained and experienced staff, healthy and appropriate horses, safe and specific equipment, dedicated and trained volunteers, and well-maintained grounds and facilities. We achieve financial sustainability through a combination of earned and contributed income. In addition, we have an active and vibrant volunteer training and retention program and long-time staff members, all of whom create a thriving environment for our programs.

Equine Assisted Services (EAS):
Our organization provides the following equine assisted services (EAS):
    Therapeutic Mounted Services
    Therapeutic Unmounted Services
    Equine-Assisted Occupational Therapy/Physical Therapy/Speech-Language Pathology
Not Checked:
    Therapeutic Driving Services
    Therapeutic Vaulting Services
    Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy/Counseling (Mental Health)
    Equine-Assisted Learning involving Academic Learning
    Equine-Assisted Learning involving Personal and/or Professional Development


Overview of our programs involved with providing EAS to individuals with special needs:
     Mane Stream offers therapy services including occupational, physical and speech-language therapies. All of our therapists are licensed and have completed or are working to complete their coursework with the American Hippotherapy Association. Clients in OT, PT and SLP are mounted and using the horse for 30 minutes of their session and spend 15 minutes in our on-site clinic.
     
     In addition to therapy services, Mane Stream also offers adaptive riding lessons for children, adolescents and adults with special needs. Our adaptive riding program is designed to teach basic horsemanship and riding skills. Lessons are available in private and semi-private formats. Riders are grouped and lessons customized according to age and skill level. All riders are paired with leaders and sidewalkers, if needed, to ensure safety. All of our instructors are registered with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship Int'l (PATH Int'l) and have been specifically trained to work with our rider population.
     
     We host an inclusive summer camp open to children with disabilities and their typically developing peers. The camp runs in one week sessions for nine weeks from June through August and is appropriate for beginning and experienced riders. Campers receive daily riding lessons, learn horsemanship and enjoy trail rides along with "typical" summer camp activities like games, arts and crafts and water play.
     
     Mane Stream has programs for veterans, individuals living with cancer, school groups and community groups. Our Operation: Take the Reins program for veterans runs in 6-week sessions and incorporates ground activities like horse handling, grooming and herd observation.
     
     Horses for Healing is an equine assisted activities and horseback riding program for individuals living with, recovering from and living life after cancer. The goal of the program is to help participants rebuild their physical, emotional and mental well-being so that participants have the potential to better recover their health and remain healthy.

At a time when equestrian sports are under pressure to protect horses while making those sports more accessible, so too must all equine organizations ensure that horses are treated humanely when interacting with people with and without special needs. Our organization takes the following steps to ensure that horses are benefiting from their interactions with people:
     As a Premier Accredited Center of PATH, Intl., Mane Stream must adhere to the standards set forth by PATH for horse use. Mane Stream feels that the standard allows for more use than is good for our horses so we keep our number of hours of use per horse lower. Each horse may be used for a maximum of 2 hours per day of mounted use and, when possible, these uses are not back to back.
     
     During both therapy sessions and riding lessons, therapists and instructors direct participants in the proper way to interact with the horses and bad behavior towards the animals is not tolerated.
     
     In addition, our Equine Manager monitors horse behavior during lessons and therapy sessions to ensure that the horses are healthy and behaving appropriately. Other than when they come in to work, our horses live outside 365 days per year provided that the weather cooperates. This keeps our horses happy and healthy.
     
     The vet, farrier and equine dentist visit regularly for routine appointments and to take care of any health issues that arise.
     
     We are confident that our horses are well taken care of so they can perform their jobs to the best of their abilities.


Community Outreach and/or Public Education:

Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     We host school groups of children of all abilities for field trips. They learn all about horses, including grooming, feeding, tacking and exercising. Activities include making treats, leading horses through an obstacle course and farm chores. Community groups, like Girl Scouts, visit Mane Stream to work on badges that require learning about horses, horse care and riding.

Policy for Disposition of Retiring or Unsound Mane Stream Program Horses It is the mission of Mane Stream to improve the quality of life for individuals with physical, developmental, emotional and medical challenges through a diverse program of equine assisted activities, equine assisted therapy and educational initiatives. These initiatives are executed by our highly skilled team of professional staff and equine partners, whose exacting task it is to perform its duties with precision and extreme care. Unfortunately, when a horse demonstrates either physically or behaviorally that it is no longer able to perform the strenuous tasks demanded, whether temporarily or permanently, Mane Stream must make a determination whether the horse is appropriate for future program work or permanent retirement. Often a prolonged rest or change of environment is sufficient to allow a horse to resume its work. However, there are circumstances that may deem it necessary to retire the horse from service. These circumstances may include, but are not limited to, the following: the horse is incurably or chronically lame or blind, it has become behaviorally unsound, or it has developed serious medical conditions that are recurring and/or incurable (including but not limited to: heaves, colic, laminitis). It is the ethical standard in the equine veterinary industry, as well as with Mane Stream, that all horses must be treated humanely under all circumstances. More importantly, all horses have the right to live a life that is relatively pain and stress free. Therefore, under these extreme health and medical circumstances, it is the policy of Mane Stream to execute the following measures: 1. Mane Stream will consult a veterinarian whose professional expertise will determine the condition and prognosis of the horse. 2. Allow the former owner of the horse the right of first refusal to take back and assume all responsibility for the horse. The former owner will be given one month to reclaim the horse. 3. If the veterinarian opines that the horse is suitable for placement, Mane Stream will make a pro-active search for an adoptive home for the horse. This will be achieved using personal contacts of our staff, Board and volunteers as well as through a wide variety of equine-related print, electronic and social networking media (Mane Stream website, Facebook, advertisements in local equestrian list serves and flyers). As of 5.23.18

Rehoming
Our organization has the following re-homing (adoption/purchase) policies and procedures in place:
    All potential adopters/purchasers complete a contract which constitutes the agreement between our organization and the new owner
    Potential adopters/purchasers must visit our organization and be observed with the horse on site
    Our organization conducts a site visit of the adopter/purchaser's facility before the transfer of the horse to the adopter/purchaser's facility
    Adopters/purchasers are NOT required to provide updates
Not Checked:
    Our organization does NOT re-home a horse to first time horse owners
