WHO WE ARE: The Montana Awareness Education and Equine Rehabilitation Association (MAERA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit horse rehabilitation and education program, specializing teaching horsemanship, wilderness/primitive skills and providing educational experiences, adventure classes and healing opportunities to children and adults


MAERA is a sustainable 501c3 non-profit that incorporated March 1, 2011, though our Executive Director has been running in Montana for almost 7 years. Our organization committed to providing new and exciting opportunities and education to the community. Our goals are to help communities, people and horses through increasing and developing relationships and new learning experiences. We continue to make positive and significant changes in the State of Montana not only by helping horses in need, but also by helping children, families, individuals and the community grow, learn and heal through increasing connections with the world around us.


Our programs incorporate:

  •  Education

  •  Leadership

  •  Community Development

  •  Human services

  •  Arts and Culture

  •  Diversity

  •  Environment and Conservation

  •  And much more.


We not only help horses in our program that eventually are available for new homes, we also offer educational and experiential learning opportunities for children, adults, families, businesses and those seeking adventure through those horses and the wilderness. Through this we help people gain new experiences to not only increase a sense of self, family and community connections, but also to develop working as a team. To do this we offer a mixture of camps, clinics, lessons and classes year round in the form of overnight excursions, in school programming, after school activities and day camps/classes. Our goal is to offer as many classes in Montana for free through scholarships, grants and donations. Starting this summer we are offering all of our children’s programs as donation and sponsorship based. This means that children in Montana can attend for free! We currently have scheduled 4 overnight wilderness/skills camps, two skill and back country horse overnight camps, 2 day horse camps, and 3 day skills camps for kids. Not only do we offer programs we work with other non-profits to provide services to children in the community. We are partners with Montana Roots for Root Down camp, set up camps for Camp Big Sky and Big Brothers Big Sisters, we run healing and assist with therapy groups for Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch, and organizations like Youth Dynamics have utilized our skills and horses for youth in need.
