Our Programs

Equest, a PATH Intl. Accredited Center, offers a variety of programs tailored to each individual client. Learn more about the programs we offer below.

 
THERAPEUTIC HORSEMANSHIP

THERAPEUTIC HORSEMANSHIP

THERAPEUTIC HORSEMANSHIP

Our therapeutic riding instructors teach Equestrian skills to participants with special physical, cognitive, Sensory, Learning, social, or emotional needs.

Our instructors work with the riders to participate in a recognized sport, which helps develop independent skills that carry over to their everyday lives. Once they are mounted, many of our riders experience a freedom of motion and ability they simply don’t or can’t enjoy in other aspects of their lives.

HIPPOTHERAPY

HIPPOTHERAPY

Treatment with the help of a horse.

Equest's therapy services provide physical, occupational, and speech therapy using the movement of the horse to accomplish therapy treatment goals. In Hippotherapy the client receives treatment while mounted on the horse. Equine-assisted therapy may also affect psychological, cognitive, behavioral, and communication outcomes. All therapies are conducted by licensed professionals.
