Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Provide full body range of motion exercise at no cost for those with disabilities using trained rescued and adopted equines. For the physically disabled, we endeavor to help strengthen muscles, loosen joints and promote circulation. For the mentally disabled, we promote a sense of accomplishment and empowerment by riding/steering a horse. For autistics, we offer an opportunity to accept new environments. We serve all ages/all disabilities. Participants must be certified disabled to attend.

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

Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.

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

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
