Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Centers to Support the Independence of Specific Populations, Human Services

Mission: Our mission is to provide equine-assisted therapy promoting the physical, emotional and educational growth of children and adults with special needs in our community. Horseback riding is a progressive form of therapy for individuals with physical and emotional challenges. The gait of the horse is the closest replicating movement to human gaitand can be more effective than traditional, clinic-based forms of therapy. The horse's motion helps improve muscular strength, coordination, and balance of the rider.

Programs: Services to 25 to 30 disabled individuals weekly at little or no cost to the client. Clients are referred by health care, social services & educational professionals. Funds contributed are applied to program services & fund raising by volunteers.
