Mission Statement

Giant Steps is dedicated to enriching lives through the power of horses, team and community. Through the excellence of our equine assisted programs, people of all ages, means, and challenges experience the extraordinary benefits of therapeutic riding and activities.

Description

Giant Steps' purpose is to serve children and adults with disabilities by offering them a chance for physical, mental and personal growth. Six days a week, at Giant Steps, individuals with disabilities come together in a safe and secure environment to interact with an equine partner. It is this interaction that becomes a source of healing in the therapeutic process. The extent to which animals respond to human need is extraordinary and the reciprocal response from the rider is nothing short of amazing.
