Get to Know Us

On The Bit LLC, offers assistance to those people who are dealing with mental health issues. We have equine-assisted learning programs and therapeutic riding that can surely help our clients connect with themselves and enjoy being with the horses. For the layout of our program, we run a 10 week 1 session per week instead of having a 1-day session to avoid cramming all the fun into one day.

How It All Started

 Owner, Kathleen Auer, has been involved with horses her entire life. She started this business personally more than two years ago through a need to help her family member and eventually the business then grew and expanded.

About Kathi and Cheryl

​We are a passionate natural horsemanship team who has owned and worked with horses our whole lives. We strive to create a safe, fun, and meaningful connection between people and​​ horses. We have learned through our own experiences and training the benefits horses bring to​ those who struggle with mental health disorders, addictions, and low self-confidence.

Kathi Auer is certified in Equine Assisted Learning, worked for years as a groom throughout the US. She has trained in NY and Florida and traveled with trotting bred racehorses for Harness Horse Youth Foundation.Cheryl is a school Adjustment Counselor who works in a local high school. She is certified in School Counseling and animal Assisted therapy.

Both Cheryl and Kathi train their horses using natural horsemanship and carry this method throughout their work with clients. Safety for humans and horses is paramount.

Our clients will have an opportunity to create a bond with the horses in addition to riding, grooming, and learning about care and upkeep. In addition, you will learn about yourself through the biofeedback horses naturally give in reaction to human feelings, mood, and behavior. Most of all you will have fun and feel good!

We are a small business which is our goal as this provides individualized programs to meet the needs of different clients. Our assisted trail riding allows us to provide a true learning experience and offers time for reflection and feedback while enjoying the beauty and freedom of our trails.

Our Mission

We aim to provide a facility where we can help people in need at the farm with experiential learning.
