Special Equestrians, Inc.
Special Equestrians, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that provides adaptive horseback riding and equine assisted activities to individuals of all ages with unique challenges. This wonderful organization was founded in 1987 with borrowed horses and a dream to serve as many children and adults with special needs as they could. With the support of the community, Special Equestrians has come to own 14.5 acres of land and 12 horses. They serve over 80 participants a week in the various programs they offer, with plans for future program expansion.
Strides Occupational Therapy Services has partnered with Special Equestrians, Inc. to provide occupational therapy services including hippotherapy as a treatment strategy. Through the use of their valuable equines, children and adults can receive therapy services like never before.
