To encourage, enrich and empower individuals through the therapeutic benefits of horses, animals and nature in an uplifting and nurturing setting. Main Stay is a place where bodies are challenged, minds embrace possibilities, and spirits are renewed.
Founded in 1987, Main Stay partners with horses along with other animals and nature to provide therapeutic horsemanship and riding, equine and animal-assisted learning, and adaptive gardening programs. Through its programs and with the assistance of more than 125 weekly volunteers, Main Stay annually serves 300 individuals, from ages 3 to 93, with physical, developmental, cognitive, social and behavioral challenges. In addition, Main Stay collaborates with and offers programs to a number of other agencies such as Family Alliance, One Hope United, Lake County Mental Health Department, Allendale, Pioneer Center and several school districts.
