Mission: The primary focus of spirithorse is to assist individuals with special needs in reaching their full potential through interaction with horses.
Programs: Spirithorse therapeutic riding center, dba spirithorse international, is a 501(c)3 that provides free equine-assisted therapy to children and adults with disabilities, histories of abuse, at-risk youth and veterans. Our mission is to assist individuals with special needs in reaching their full potential through interaction with horses. We change lives. We serve clients entirely free of charge through our research-based, award-winning equine-assisted healthcare program. And we estimate that at least 65% of our families would otherwise not be able to afford this therapy. Spirithorse changes the lives of our clients by aiding in their full scope of development. Our program helps them to succeed in their academic development, their communication and social development, promotes physical health and well-being, and counteracts the effects of disabilities through our research-based methods.
My medically fragile 13 year old daughter has up to 8 kinds of therapies a week. ALL of her doctors and therapists say SPIRITHORSE has been THE single most beneficial therapy for her. She has been going for 6 years now and we couldn't be more DELIGHTED! The staff are wonderful. The horses are so gentle. And Mr. Fletcher? He must be related to Santa Clause! My daughter looks forward to going every week, and even though she only functions at a 10 month old level, she KNOWS Buttercup, and Buttercup KNOWS her.
