MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Enhancing lives through the therapeutic power of the horse since 1993. Read more about Equi-Ed.
Equi-Ed offers a variety of year-round programs, from riding, vaulting, and horsemanship to competition opportunities. Each program is specially designed to enhance the therapeutic benefits of equine activities. Students of all ages and backgrounds participate in riding, vaulting, and competing.
Equi-Ed offers to students with and without disabilities who participate in therapeutic riding, the opportunity to experience physical, emotional, and mental benefits. Read more about becoming a student.
Therapeutic riding helps students become healthier as it increases balance, muscle control and strength. Horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves the human body in a manner similar to the human walking gait thereby providing the upper and lower body sensation and mental image of walking. It stimulates passive exercise, which increases cardiovascular, muscular and respiratory strength.

At this time California is still in a Stay-At-Home order. As a result, our lessons and other program activities have been cancelled. The horses are still at the facility and depend upon us. Staff members, Tatiana and Max, along with a group of dedicated volunteers have been taking daily care of them and they are doing well.
Our next session is scheduled to begin June 6. We will continue to monitor directives from the Governor and our County Health Officials to determine in the next week or so if we will be able to resume June 6 or will need to extend our closure.
In the meantime we are coming up with some creative ways to connect with our students, volunteers, donors and the community. Please enjoy these videos which have recently been created to share.
Your help would be so appreciated at this time in the COVID-19 crisis to help the Equi-Ed horses be ready for when we are able to welcome our riders back. Tooey, Peggy, Mike, Charlotte, Karma, and Garland, thank you. Please go to https://www.equi-ed.org/donate
