Overview of our programs involved with providing EAAT to individuals with special needs, including our organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, capabilities to meet the goals, and our long-term plans to sustain our programs:
     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. These programs are categorized into Equine Assisted Activities and Learning (EAAL) and Equine Assisted Therapies (EAT).
     
     Equine Assisted Activities and Learning (EAAL):
     
     -Therapeutic Riding
     Therapeutic horseback riding is a recreational and sport-based activity that focuses on learning riding skills. The therapeutic benefits from horseback riding can include physical, cognitive, emotional and social improvements.
     
     -Sibling Program
     Reflective of Endeavor’s commitment to inclusion, able-bodied siblings of Endeavor participants are invited to join in all aspects of program. Fostering confidence, respect and a lot of joy, the Sibling Program offers meaningful benefits for family members and the family unit as a whole.
     
     -Ground Horsemanship Program
     Ground horsemanship program utilizes equine-assisted activities to enhance learning and development. An individualized plan will be developed for ground participants focusing on horse husbandry skills including, but not limited to: communication, grooming, tacking, and healthcare.
     
     -Active Duty/Veteran Programs
     We are proud to offer equine assisted activities and therapies to active duty military, veterans, and their immediate families free of charge. All veteran programs are overseen by a mental health professional who is on-site to provide any support needed.
     
     -Group/Residential Programming
     Endeavor currently partners with 18 residential facilities and day programs to provide Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies.
     
     - Equine Assisted Learning
     Endeavor partners with the Bedford Central School District to provide monthly equine assisted learning sessions that incorporate horses into the classes' educational goals. Students learn horsemanship skills that are applicable to their academic curriculum in a sensory rich environment.
     
     - Day Camps
     Camps can include ground horsemanship skills, daily riding, games, crafts, and activities that center around the horse.
     
     -Field Trips, Birthday Parties and Special Events
     By request, Endeavor can provide a wide range of personalized field trips for school outings, recreational groups, local businesses or residential facilities, and birthday parties or special events for currently enrolled participants. Endeavor can create an itinerary based on members of participants, age range, and goals for the trip.
     
     -Vocational Volunteers
     Endeavor welcomes individuals with special needs, who are a minimum age of 14, to volunteer around the farm and facility with a job coach. Tasks assigned are ability-appropriate, and include, but are not limited to: cleaning tack, raking, cleaning water buckets/troughs, sweeping, painting, picking stalls, etc. Vocational Volunteers learn the responsibility of caring for horses and a farm, and how to efficiently and effectively complete tasks.
     
     
     Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT)
     
     -Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)
     Endeavor utilizes several different models of EAP to address mental health, including EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth And Learning Association). Also referred to as Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP), Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is an experiential process in which a licensed mental health professional works with a credentialed equine specialist to partner with equine(s) to address personal therapy goals set forth by the mental health professional and the client.
     
     - Physical Therapy
     Physical therapists using Hippotherapy are utilizing 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.
     
     - Speech and Language Therapy
     Hippotherapy uses equine movement to accomplish traditional speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing goals. Carefully modulated, well cadenced equine movement offers a highly effective means of addressing speech and language deficits through facilitation of the neurophysiological systems that support speech and language function. Equine movement improves postural control, sensory systems and motor planning in order to facilitate coordination and timing, modulation, respiratory control, sensory integration and attention. Sensory integration via hippotherapy simultaneously addresses the vestibular, proprioceptive, tactile, visual, kinesthetic, olfactory, and auditory systems. And it’s fun!

DEFINITIONS: Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT): Any equine-assisted activity or therapy, mounted or ground-based, including but not limited to treatments that incorporate equine activities and/or the equine environment and/or experiential learning approaches that promote the development of life skills for educational, professional and personal goals through equine-assisted activities. Equine assisted activities include but are not limited to therapeutic riding, therapeutic driving, interactive vaulting, grooming and/or stable management.

Special Needs: Any difficulty or difficulties (such as a physical, emotional, behavioral, or learning disability or impairment) that require or benefit from assistance and support from certified specialists, therapists, counselors, instructors, trainers and/or facilitators. 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 and a lack of resources, including economic resources, which can impact an individual's ability to successfully transition into adulthood and being 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 under age, engaging in sexual behavior, displaying disruptive behavior, bullying/harassment, fighting, and committing acts of vandalism.


Community Outreach and/or Public Education:
Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     All of our direct service programs at Endeavor utilize our equine partners. 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.

Additional Explanation:
"Other therapies" include acupuncture, chiropractor and massage. "Other costs" include tack fitting and repairs. For some reason, despite updating this numerous times, the form keeps swapping the amounts for Medications/Supplements ($2,577)and Dentist ($0). Our equine dentist donated all services in 2017. The 2016 990 allocates Horse Care Staff as program expenses (see Part IX Statement of Functional Expenses, line 7). The $56,400 for Horse Care staff in 2017 equates to 60% of our Barn Manager's salary (with 30% allocated to program and 10% to admin) and 100% of our contracted barn staff's wages. The contracted barn staff wages had previously been included under "Manure Removal" on this page, but this has been updated to reflect dumpster removal fees. These wages were included under "Maintenance" on our internal budget; that number has been removed from the Maintenance section on this page, as it has already been counted in the Horse Care Staff section.

Average cost per day per horse: $32
Average length of stay for an equine: 258 days
Based on a total of 4380 days equines were in the care of this facility during 2017
