Mission Statement

Therapeutic horseback riding program dedicated to the physical and emotional growth of persons with special needs.

People of all ages are invited to volunteer at HorseAbility. Volunteers serve a wide range of functions for the organization, such as fundraising, horse and stable care, and assisting with therapeutic riding and hippotherapy sessions.

The bond that forms between our riders and volunteers who lead the horse and walk beside the rider is something you can experience even if you have never worked with horses before. Whether it is working with our students and horses, working around the barn or helping in the office, there is something here for everyone! Come join our team!

HorseAbility's mission is to offer a wide range of horse-related programs to children, adults, and families with special needs to promote the physical, psychological, emotional, social, and spiritual well being of its participants. The personal attention that each participant receives from our wonderful staff and volunteers is unparalleled. Consultation with participants, their families, and staff takes place on a regular basis to ensure that the appropriate level of service and programs are being utilized to optimize the impact of our programs.

The population HorseAbility serves ranges from those who are physically challenged (e.g. people with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and visual impairments), developmentally and cognitively disabled (e.g. people with Down Syndrome, Autism, and learning disabilities), and emotionally disabled (e.g. people with interpersonal difficulties and psychological impairments).
