Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our Mission is to provide an equestrian therapeutic environment for the physical, mental and emotionally challenged children and adults; furthermore, to allow them to explore and achieve basic life functioning to the best of their ability and create a sense of freedom, independence and accomplishment which cannot be achieved or duplicated in the traditional therapeutic setting. We hope this helps us and promotes others to continue to grow in dedication and responsibility in providing equine activities and programs for individuals with special needs
