Enhancing lives through the therapeutic power of the horse since 1993. Read more about Equi-Ed.
Equi-Ed offers year-round programming in riding and horsemanship. Each is specially designed to enhance the therapeutic, social and educational benefits equine assisted activities has to offer individuals. Students of all ages and backgrounds participate in riding and horsemanship as well as competition opportunities if they are so inclined.
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.
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.
