Why are we a Messenger?

The EQUUS Foundation has designated our organization as a Messenger. Click here to learn more about our horse care and use practices.

Messengers are organizations on the Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency and accountability by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their operations.

Equine Welfare Network Messenger

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.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our Mission: To be a place where God brings those with special needs together with horses so that they can be successful physically, cognitively, emotionally, and academically.

Our Commitment:
Jeremiah\'s Crossing does not charge participants for services; striving to support the activities of the ranch through fundraising and grant opportunities.

Horse-related programs:
JCI provides weekly Equine Assisted Activities (EAA) lessons to individuals with physical, cognitive, emotional, and/or academic special needs ages 4 and above. EAA lessons fill a variety of needs including exercise, recreation, and an opportunity to improve mobility, self-confidence, and communication skills. <br /><br />JCI also provides nationally recognized, extensive training for all lesson volunteers and program horses.

Non-horse-related programs:
JCI provides a traveling American Girl Doll program for our students. Students may check out one of two American Girl Doll kits for one week. The kit includes: The doll, her horse, two fiction books related to the doll, and a journal in which to write what the doll and horse did during the week they were away from JCI. The journal is meant to be read by subsequent borrowers. This program was developed to help students maintain their reading and writing skills during summer vacation.

JCI also runs a Summer Reading Program. Reading level appropriate books are offered along with projects designed to support reading skills acquisition.
