Therapeutic Riding

This program can produce remarkable improvements in mobility, balance, posture, coordination, language development, behavior control, and concentration.

First Responders

A 5 week long program offered to first responders to combat secondary trauma, burnout, and the intense reality many first responders face on the job.

Therapeutic Horsemanship

Integrates equine-human interaction while providing opportunities to teach critical life skills such as trust, respect, honesty, and communication.

Veterans Program

Designed to build upon the horse-human bond and its effects on healing, building, trust and improving relationships.

Sensory Trail

An integrated environment at our Brewster location that challenges the students’ balance, stimulates their senses and encourages them to interact with the world around them.
