Mission Statement

EquiCenter’s purpose is to foster the personal growth and individual achievement of people with disabilities, at-risk youth, Veterans, and their families using a wide range of therapeutic equestrian activities.

Description

Horseback riding is a progressive form of therapy for individuals with mental and/or physical challenges. The physical activities involved in horseback riding prove to be an effective tool for improving muscle stimulation, strength, coordination, flexibility, posture and balance. While providing these physical benefits, equestrian activities also increase communication, social and organizational skills, and help to enhance self-confidence, self-discipline, cooperation, teamwork and independence.
