Our Setting

Creating Pathways Farms is a peaceful property: many visitors have commented on how it feels as if they are far away, similar to an “up north” setting, yet they are only moments away from urban and suburban communities. CPF is 20 acres of serene natural space that has been described by some as what southeastern Wisconsin looked like 100 years ago.


Creating Pathways Farms

Sussex, WI

Our Mission

Creating Pathways Farm provides experiential services in partnership with horses to facilitate growth and learning. Utilizing the unique strength, beauty and nature of the horse, we mentor, empower and strengthen life skills for individuals, families, groups and organizations through our equine assisted activities. In doing so, we promote vibrant, adaptive communities.

There are stands of mature trees sheltering a trail, a spring fed pond full of bullfrogs and fish, a lookout over a swirling stream.

And of course, the magnificent horses that are our partners at CPF. The horses living here are an integral part of the farm and our mission. They offer a majestic, powerful and beautiful presence and are a highlight for visitors to interact with and observe.

Our Herd

— both humans and horses — stands ready to assist you in creating the pathway to your own place of balance and peace. The work of the farm is based in offering a peaceful, safe setting for those who come here for our services. Those services are offered by our highly trained and experienced staff and include Equine Assisted Growth and Learning and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, camps for children from the inner city, educational opportunities for those at risk, team building and leadership skill development.


Our Name

really tells you about our mission. We offer you an environment and the experiences that foster and promote your own unique journey to well-being. Our work is tailored to the specific needs of the individuals, families or groups that seek our services, based on our collaboration with you. In addition to equine assisted growth, learning and therapy, CPF also offers classes and training in horse-human relationships and horsemanship development, corporate retreats, leadership, and team building. The peaceful nature setting at CPF also is particularly well-suited to opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual growth. CPF was thrilled to offer a camp for children at risk held during the summers of 2017/18/19. Our fun camp activities included Native American day, horse painting, nature hikes, gardening and more. We are hoping to continue our work with groups of children at risk in 2022.

CPF is a developing project, stay tuned for more.
