EQUINE WELFARE NETWORK GUARDIAN PROFILE
Effective Date: May 11, 2020 Last Updated: August 16, 2020

We are proud to be an EQUUS Foundation Guardian and share our horse care & use practices with the public.

MISSION & PROGRAMS

Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) which are in accordance with the EQUUS Foundation Guidelines on Qualifications of Organizations Conducting Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT).
Our organization provides 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.
Number of facilities/locations where horses used in our programs are HOUSED AND CARED FOR or were HOUSED AND CARED FOR during 2019:
     1. Endeavor Therapeutic Horsemanship
     *2. Endeavor - Succabone
     *3. Coker Farm
* Operational in 2019
Our organization has made equines available for research studies or medical training.

Please explain where and for what purpose equines are/were provided to use in research or medical training. 
     Veterinarian will use horse at farm for intern/vet tech training, only for doing procedures that the horse needs done already. The horse receives that procedure for free in exchange. The veterinarian has also worked with our horses for cardiac research on property, where horses were only asked to do their normal training routine with a heart monitor on them.

Mission:
Endeavor Therapeutic Horsemanship, Inc.'s mission is to empower individuals with a broad range of special needs by providing the highest quality equine-assisted activities and therapies in an inclusive and welcoming environment.

Summary of organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, and capabilities to meet the goals, including its long-term plans to sustain its programs:
In January of 2020, Endeavor moved to our forever home achieving our top programing priority of identifying and securing permanent program space. Since the move, Endeavor has a five year growth plan to increase our capacity thoughtfully and sustainability. We have three strategic goals to achieve the necessary growth.
     
     1. Facility - the new facility has 3 barns. We are working to outfit the lower barn to be appropriate and self sufficient for our veteran program. By creating a veteran sanctuary, we are able to create a functional and private area of the farm for veterans. This will allow us to run simultaneous programs since we previously closed the farm down when veterans are on site.
     
     2. Herd - Increase herd size by one per year to enable an increase in open horse rides and ground program sessions.
     
     3. Operational Efficiency - Migrate data to salesforce, move all paperwork to a virtual platform, and hire one new full time staff person to oversee program operations.
     
     With the crisis surrounding COVID-19, Endeavor is following all best practices by the CDC, WHO, and local government. We have pivoted our programs to offer services online. We have created and offer on-demand videos, live virtual classes, and free community classes. While our program revenues are significantly lower, we are proud that we are able to continue serving our community.
     
     It is incredibly important to the staff and board to support our community however we can. We are in talks with local hospitals, first responders, and care givers to offer trauma informed programing for these populations. We aim to help our community heal.

Overview of our programs involved with providing EAAT to individuals with special needs:
     Endeavor provides a spectrum of integrated programs, serving the evolving needs of riders and their families, including recreational sport, clinical services, and programs focused on growth and learning. Endeavor provides a wide scope of fun filled activities and empowering experiences to participants of all ages and their families.
     
     At-Risk Youth Horsemanship
     
     Endeavor partners with local residential facilities to support the efforts for positive youth development to the areas most vulnerable young men and women due a variety of factors including poverty, racism, mental health diagnosis, and histories of trauma.
     
     Staff at our partnering agencies report measurable and marked progress in emotion management, ability to self-soothe, positive response to change, and increased levels of engagement.
     
     Equine Assisted Learning
     
     Endeavor partners with local schools or school districts to offer programs in the sensory rich environment of the farm. Endeavor instructors partner with the teachers to create lessons plans that compliment the learning objectives in the classroom.
     
     Therapeutic Horsemanship
     
     Therapeutic horseback riding and ground horsemanship are recreational and sport-based activities that naturally complement one another. The program teaches both riding and unmounted horse skills to children and adults.
     Participants are able to learn riding skills in a safe and judgement free environment that is empowering and fun. These skills include mounting and dismounting, steering, transitions, posting, half seat, diagonals, ring figures, leg yields, and jumping.
     
     On the ground, the participant is able to tend to their horse and experience a stronger bond than riding alone. This includes but is not limited to horse anatomy, grooming, first aid and healthcare, feeding and watering, leading and lunging, and horse breeds and colors and history.
     
     Endeavor can accommodate children of varying levels and always focus on the ability and setting goals that continue to challenge and inspire.
     
     Some of the therapeutic benefits that we typically observer include physical improvements like increase in core strength and fine motor skills; cognitive improvements like increase in ability to perform multi-step directions; emotional improvements like the increase ability in self-regulation, and social skills for example increase in confidence to communicate with peers.
     
     Veteran and Active Duty Military
     
     Veterans learn how to care for the horses, develop riding skills & address and strength their mental health through equine assisted psychotherapy. Programs are offered on a weekly schedule or a one day special event. All veteran programs are offered free of charge.
     
     Clinical Services
     
     Endeavor works with clinical specialists to offer equine assisted psychotherapy and Physical Therapy.
     
     Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is an experiential process in which a licensed mental health professional works with equines to address personal therapy goals set forth by the mental health professional and the client.
     
     Physical therapists at Endeavor utilize the unique multidimensional movement of the horse to facilitate changes in the participants. The movement is rhythmic and repetitive in nature, thus providing a dynamic base of support, making it an excellent tool for increasing trunk control and strength, balance, postural control and endurance, as well as weight bearing and motor planning. The therapist is able to manipulate various aspects of the horse’s gait and movements, the participant’s position on the horse, the therapeutic tack and types of activities/interventions to generate and promote functional outcomes.

At a time when equestrian sports are under pressure to protect horses while making those sports more accessible, so too must all equine organizations ensure that horses are treated humanely when interacting with people with and without special needs. Our organization takes the following steps to ensure that horses are benefiting from their interactions with people:
     Endeavor takes great care in matching horses with participants based on their height, weight, physical limitations, demeanor and needs.
     
     Endeavor is a PATH Intl. Premiere Accredited Standards and with that certification adheres to the best practices set by PATH or set by Endeavor and reviewed by PATH.
     
     Each horse has a different heigh and weight limit along with a maximum number of rides per week. The highest number of riders possible is 10. However, depending on the horse, we have different maximum numbers per horse.
     
     When pairing horses with participants working on the ground, we make sure we note if a horse seems to be distressed or bothered by a certain participant. While most of our horses enjoy all of our programs, some horses prefer not to work with riders that have frequent loud noises, lack of control in spastic movements, or has a general touch that is too forceful.
     
     Additionally, we conduct annual lameness exams and have our horses on a rotating schedule for acupuncture and chiropractics.
     
     Finally, each of our horses have turnout everyday for as long as possible to ensure good health and behavior with our participants.
     
     We find that investing more in our horses general well being keeps vet bills low and herd turn over to a minimum.


Community Outreach and/or Public Education:

Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     We provide or host continued education for the general public and/or other professionals in the EAAT field. These seminars, clinics, and workshops typically include hands-on portions with the horses, however, some only discuss why we work with horses for different program offerings instead of actively working with the horses.
     
     Endeavor also partners with the Bedford Central School District, as well as local temples and churches to provide Equine Assisted Learning to elementary and middle school students.

DEFINITIONS:
Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT): Any activity that incorporates equine interactions and/or the equine environment, mounted or ground-based, including horsemanship instruction adapted to the ability/disability of those receiving services aimed at contributing positively to their cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being, psychotherapy and/or mental health counseling aimed at achieving goals set forth by the mental health professional and the client, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology treatment strategies that utilize equine movement, and experiential learning approaches that promote the development of life skills to achieve educational, professional and personal goals.

Special Needs: Any difficulty or difficulties (such as a physical, emotional, behavioral, or cognitive disability or impairment) that require or benefit from instructors, specialists, counselors, trainers and/or facilitators who have certified training for their scope of practice applicable to the people participating in the programs and specific to the program offerings. The difficulty may not be limited to a health issue but may result from the interaction between the individual and the society in which he or she lives arising from an abusive or unhealthy environment or situation and/or a lack of resources, including economic resources, placing them at risk of a future with less than optimal outcomes.

At-Risk: Refers to being at-risk of a future with less than optimal outcomes. Youth are considered at-risk for a number of reasons, such as if they are homeless or transient, involved in drugs or alcohol, abused sexually, physically or emotionally, mentally ill, neglected at home or live in stressful family environments, lacking social or emotional supports, and involved with delinquent peers. At-Risk youth are likely to be involved in a number of risky behaviors, such as running away, skipping school, drinking underage, engaging in sexual behavior, displaying disruptive behavior, bullying/harassment, fighting, and committing acts of vandalism.
