Thinking Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies at Cheff are for you/someone you know? Read on! 

In order to be sure that this is a good fit for all involved, and to get each client scheduled in a space that would be most beneficial to them, Cheff has a 5 step intake process.

1. Give us a call at 269-731-4471

We’ll chat with you about the specifics of you/your client’s situation and figure out if you/your client qualifies for our services, and if so, what program may be best.

2. Schedule an assessment

Assessments are strategically scheduled during quiet programming hours and are conducted by one of our instructors. These appointments help us determine how we can make your experience at Cheff most beneficial and are designed to give everyone a good idea of what to expect on their first day of programming. We introduce you to the facility, the program process, determine what type of horse is appropriate, and what level of support is needed.

3. Fill out client paperwork

Client paperwork MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO YOUR ASSESSMENT. You can visit our paperwork page for all necessary forms/information.

4. Attend your assessment

5. Sign up for a riding session

We will work with you to determine the best fit available on our schedule for your needs and walk you through the sign up process. This often happens prior to leaving your assessment. Cheff’s current schedule is very full and day/time options for new riders may be limited. We will do our best to find something that works! Following this initial sign up, you will be required to sign up independently online prior to each session HERE.
