Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Great and Small provides equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) to children and adults of all ages affected by a range of physical, developmental, emotional, and learning disabilities. Through a supportive and therapeutic engagement with horses we strengthen and empower our riders, helping them develop their full potential.


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

Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Services (EAS) in accordance with the EQUUS Foundation Guidelines on Qualifications of Organizations Conducting Equine-Assisted Services (EAS).

Our organization does not provide community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of equines involved in our programs.

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

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