HorsePower's mission statement is to use equine-assisted activities to promote functional independence and overall personal well-being for individuals that have physical, emotional, and/or cognitive limitations.
HorsePower (Handi-Riders, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) organization that has been serving the Sioux Falls area for the past twenty five years by providing a summer therapeutic horse program for individuals with disabilities. Horses have been found capable of providing extremely beneficial therapies - physical, mental, and emotional - for a broad spectrum of individuals. Children with autism speak for the first time, children with physical disabilities gain the strength and confidence to take their first steps, emotional scars are eased and overcome. We are developing an expanded therapeutic riding program that will provide year-round services to a number of populations within the community. This program will continue to provide beneficial therapies for individuals with physical or mental disabilities. Furthermore, individuals struggling with mental health or behavioral issues can also benefit from this type of therapy. Additionally, we will offer outreach services to disadvantaged or at-risk youth.
