Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Working in conjunction with the Monmouth County Park System, Special People United to Ride (SPUR) is a non-profit 501(3)(c) organization that provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to achieve personal goals through therapeutic horseback riding. The park system's Sunnyside Equestrian Center provides a safe environment where personal strengths are accentuated by the freedom of riding and handling a horse. Students work to improve self-esteem, social skills, balance, muscle tone and posture, as well as to process sensory messages sent to the brain.

It is the mission of the Board of Directors of SPUR to raise funds for the assistance of individuals with disabilities through need-based scholarships for SPUR therapeutic horsemanship programs. In addition, the Board of Directors will provide material assistance to the Monmouth County Park System for the implementation of its therapeutic horsemanship programs, when deemed necessary by the SPUR Board of Directors.


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

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization uses horses to provide our services that are cared for and sheltered by another organization(s).

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

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


*Guardians are organizations on the Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency and accountability by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their operations. The Guardian Designation is awarded annually.
