"When Nicholas first started he was so timid and unsure of himself. In the past year, Nicholas has grown so much. And Equi-Ed has been one of the main reasons.... you all do so much. More than just what is obvious.... it is life changing."

Groups For Fire Survivors
Horse Hugs Help and Phoenix Rising groups for children 6-11 and 12-17 who lost a home in the October 2017 fires. Therapeutic time learning about horsemanship. Taught by instructors who lost a home in the fires and involving horses who survived the fires as well.
Equi-Ed students have participated in local, mainstream horse competitions and schooling horse shows, the CALNET Horse show in Los Angeles, as well as our own yearly Equi-Ed Horseshow.
A winter ground school program which includes elements of horse care and maintenance in addition to equestrian themed activities/projects and sometimes a field trip. Saturdays, January - March.
In our Read, Ride and Create program, children attend courses in reading and art, in addition to riding and horsemanship.
Lessons are customized to meet the individual's needs and goals. Students ride in small groups of 2-4 to ensure they receive personalized attention from the instructor. Held year-round.
Adapted Recreational Vaulting focuses largely on facilitating an environment which provides opportunity for interaction and experiential learning. Interaction with the horse through ground games, with other vaulters through team activities and with the vaulting instructor through activities on the horse. Gymnastics on horseback provides the opportunity to improve balance and flexibility, develop fine and gross motor skills, build strength and work as a team. Held throughout the year.
Equi-Ed provides the Wounded American Veterans Equestrian Project program (WAVE) to veterans experiencing service related trauma of a physical or cognitive nature. Our goal is to provide veterans or their family members skills in safe horsemanship.
