We offer several services at Barn Yard Equine where we incorporate volunteers. Our largest program is therapy. We offer specially trained horses to be leased during pediatric therapy sessions (Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and Physical Therapy). We utilize volunteers to set up the arena, "side walker" during therapy sessions, horse leader during therapy sessions or facilitate play activities during sessions. We are creating group therapy session, starting a horticulture therapy program, host school field trips and will be starting a Special Olympics team next year. We always welcome construction help as well! Not sure if you want to be around horses and special needs children? There's one way to find out!

About Barn Yard Equine
PO Box 7203, Chandler, AZ 85246, US
Welcome to Barn Yard Equine where we integrate horses into therapy. Barn Yard Equine is a place where people of all ages & abilities can experience horses.
In 2017, Barn Yard Equine began with a dream, a horse owner, a therapist, a volunteer and a client. Uniting the love of special needs children and horses was the foundation of our dream. With our combined experience, passion and our hearts based in the center of the company, we formed a place for people of all abilities to experience horses.
As our dream became a reality and then a growing business, the heart of the company remains.
In addition to providing specially trained horses for Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and Mental Health services, we work with a Vocational Rehabilitation team, Horticulture Therapist and Yoga Instructor to provide additional holistic and well being community services. We are excited to be expanding and providing more services soon!
We'll work with your schedule.
