Mission Statement

Giant Steps Therapeutic Equestrian Center, Inc. is dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals with physical, emotional, and developmental disabilities as well as youths that have been identified as "at-risk". It is our mission to offer the extraordinary benefits of therapeutic riding to a wide range of clients from bay area counties.

We are the only year-round premier accredited therapeutic riding program in the Bay Area. In our state of the art facility, we provide life-changing therapy that is clinically proven to be effective, and best of all, it's fun!

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.
