Our mission is to provide equine assisted activities for children with special needs. This may include but is not limited to children with autism, down syndrome, brain injuries, cerebral palsy, victims of abuse, vision impaired, selective mutism and many others. These children benefit from the movement of the horse to stimulate the rider's vestibular system as it responds to balance signals, voluntary movement and speech. The horse provides an alternative therapy for children to build self esteem, learn sequential tasks & stay on tasks, empathy & promote stronger gross and fine motor skills.
