For the Love of Horses and Children!
The Project Arrowhead© service is unique because of its mission and its collaboration with Full Horsepower, an equestrian distance riding and training team and its horses. The Project Arrowhead© team includes a master horseman, an equestrian manager, educators and coordinators, residing in Maryland, USA.
Protect Yourself 1, Inc.’s Founder Jean Albert Renaud (JAR), designed the Project Arrowhead service, that targets youth living in disadvantaged areas, and uses horses/Mustang as a vehicle to get the attention of the general public. The Project Arrowhead© service connects Mustangs and youth from all walks of life. In a sense, both youth and Mustangs face the same challenges. They experience extreme aggressiveness, fear, malnutrition, exposure to diseases, and have to face survival on a daily basis with these handicaps.
Through the Project Arrowhead© service they meet and exchange an unspoken language using gestures which, overtime, increases trust and love between each other. The youth develop a calming attitude, attentiveness, patience and discipline, and the once-wild and untamed Mustang becomes gentler, attentive and domesticated as he adapts to his new environment. The service enhances youth teamwork and leadership skills, and provides an opportunity for them to transfer the experience to their daily challenges in a positive way. Through the Project Arrowhead© service, both can be protected and guided towards living a productive, successful and healthy life.

The Project Arrowhead© service encourages awareness and education for all youth, especially those living in high risk areas where HIV and related diseases have an infection rate which is alarming. The service, using hands-on activities involving the wild horse; Mustang, nature, gardening, ecology, health education, yoga and delivers the overall message of social and personal responsibility that develops a sense of mutual respect for youth; the American future and Mustang; the American Icon, and by doing so increases positive youth behaviors and wild horse Mustang preservation.
The PY1 corporate team has produced and developed the Project Arrowhead© service in Maryland. Since 2005, Project Arrowhead©, Inc. has demonstrated experience by developing a very successful service with horses/Mustang and at-risk youth from different organizations such as United Planning Organization (POWER: Providing Opportunities with Educational Readiness) from Washington DC, Guide Program, Inc., Woodbourne School and Park Heights Avenue Fellowship Association from Baltimore City, MD. The youth involved showed an increase of positive behaviors after approaching the horses/Mustang, and participating in the hands-on activities of the service.
