4STEPS goal is to improve the minds and bodies of our riders, using our horses as partners.

4STEPS  mission is to provide equine assisted activities and therapies to  promote physical, emotional and educational growth and development for  children and adults with disabilities and their families in our  community including military veterans and their families.    

Our Vision is to bring hope, joy and unlimited possibilities through the healing power of the horse. At 4STEPS the daily obstacles of frustrating disabilities are left behind for the freedom of a horse’s movement. Students challenge the limits of their abilities and best of all have fun doing it!
