Equine Therapy Program Finds New Home at Legendary Jockey's Farm
New Day NKY has a new home at Dream Fields, jockey Steve Cauthen's thoroughbred training facility.
The program provides horse-facilitated pyschotherapy for issues like at-risk youth intervention, grief counseling, anxiety, and more. As the programs improved and expanded, the need for a larger facility was apparent.
“My wife Amy and I are thrilled to see Dream Fields continuing to be used for horses with such a special mission," said Cauthen, a Walton native who, in 1978, became the youngest jockey to win the Triple Crown, when he rode Affirmed to three straight wins. "We are excited to watch New Day NKY grow and the community benefit from these important programs.”

At Dream Fields, New Day NKY will continue to provide meaningful leadership retreats, breast cancer weekends, grief camps, special needs school programs, and more.
New Day has developed synergistic relationships with referring agencies, practitioners and the community-at-large, currently working with St. Elizabeth Hospital, North Key, Boone County School Systems, private practitioners such as Dr. Jean Deters, clinical psychologist, and the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky and several others.
