EQUI-KIDS is home to a beautiful herd of horses who are housed in a 24-stall barn on our 92-acre property. While some of the horses belong to EQUI-KIDS, most are on loan to us from their generous owners. Each week our team of dedicated horses provides equine-assisted activities and therapies to a diverse group of participants. Our programs offer support to individuals with special needs such as Down syndrome, autism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, amputation, mental and physical disabilities, attention deficit disorder and more.

Sponsorship opportunities are available to help support the day-to-day care of our wonderful herd.

Hamilton

Hi, I'm Hamilton, a 13 year old Cleveland Bay. I have been with my owner since I was 3 years old. She rode me as a hunter and showed me locally. Now that she is raising her young kids, she has graciously loaned me to EQUI-KIDS to be a therapy horse. As a large horse, I am able to easily work with participants both big and small.

Teddy

Hi, I'm Teddy, a Quarter horse measuring 16.1 hands. I was purchased by my previous owner from a trail riding facility in North Carolina and was occasionally used for trail rides. They generously donated me to EQUI-KIDS because they felt I could serve a higher purpose. I have become a very valuable member of the EQUI-KIDS herd. I support many of the most challenged riders and am used for the EQUI-VETS program and with the independent riders.
