SMART Admin House
Our beautiful Admin House is surrounded by flower beds that need some TLC!

Are you someone who loves to garden...but just doesn't have the garden? Feeling a need to get your hands in some dirt, do some weeding, mowing, pruning and planting?? Well, we have a beautiful facility with a gorgeous Admin House, surrounded by flower beds that need some regular TLC! As mostly volunteer powered organization, we depend heavily on people who want to help us out in a variety of ways---and right now, our flower beds are screaming "Help Us!" We provide all the tools and equipment and funds necessary for maintenance and improvements. Once or twice a month attention keeps our gardens in good shape. We'll be happy to hear from you if you are interested in these outdoor beautifying and nurturing activities!! THANK YOU!

Mission Statement

Mission Statement:

Enriching the lives of people with special needs through therapeutic horse-related programs.


"Empowering lives through the healing power of horses."

Horses are Empowering! At SMART, we strive to improve the quality of the lives of our SMART Riders and their families through therapeutic horseback riding, carriage driving and equine assisted activities. Through respectful partnerships with our horses, we create an environment that promotes a life of inclusion, respect, growth and independence.


At SMART, horseback riding and carriage driving lessons are provided on a weekly basis to both children and adults with a wide range of special needs (physical, mental, cognitive and/or emotional.) The students learn to groom and care for their horses as well as tack up and ride or drive their horses. This all encompassing horsemanship program gives each individual the opportunity to exercise their bodies, minds and spirits through therapeutic equine assisted activities. SMART is a Premier Center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, Int'l and a partner agency of the United Way of Manatee County. SMART is an ALL administered volunteer organization and has been providing services to the community for 27 years!
