Without our horses we would not be able to impact the lives, bodies and spirits of so many children and adults with disabilities and special needs. If you would like to help provide an emotionally safe environment that can empower individuals to transform their lives,
Students from age four to seventy come to us with diverse backgrounds and ability levels. Some have physical, cognitive, sensory or emotional disabilities, Other students are pre-teens to middle aged adults who benefit from the confidence and independence gained from the equestrian experience. For children and adults with disabilities, no other therapeutic recreational opportunity benefits so many aspects of a disability in such a holistic way. A student's muscles grow stronger while brushing and grooming a horse. Confidence develops when learning to interact with a gentle but powerful animal. Emotional connections develop with the horses, instructor, volunteers and fellow students. Contact us for information on how you can help sponsor a child or adult with disabilities in our program.

A horse's soothing rhythm, strength, warmth, and three-dimensional movement pattern provides healthy exercise while improving circulation and muscle tone. The discipline associated with working with horses and the social interactions between peers benefit the mind and spirit while raising self-esteem and increasing self-sufficiency through accomplishment. The unconditional love of the horses has been proved to reduce anxiety, encourage interaction and offer a haven where riders can feel a sense of empowerment.
