ABOUT EQUI-KIDS:

Founded in 1989, EQUI-KIDS is a 501c3 organization that provides life-changing equine-assisted services (EAS) to a large and diverse community of children and adults with special needs in Virginia Beach and within Hampton Roads. The organization is accredited by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) as a Premier Accredited Center. PATH Intl. is the international professional organization that sets the standards for the EAS industry and certifies credentials for PATH Intl. centers and instructors.

EQUI-KIDS serves an average of 80 to 100 participants each week and all services are provided by credentialed providers. Our services include therapeutic riding, therapeutic horsemanship, equine-assisted learning, equine-assisted psychotherapy with a licensed mental health provider, summer camps, and educational workshops. Participants range in age from 5 years to seniors in their 90s with more than 150 distinct diagnoses recorded. Our programs also serve veterans, military service members, and first responders.

EQUI-KIDS relies upon 250 active volunteers who receive rigorous training and who provide 13,000 volunteer hours annually. More than 800 participants are served during an average fiscal year. The organization is governed by a volunteer board of directors and is staffed by 12 full-time/10 part-time employees, along with a herd of 11 horses and 4 ponies. Each horse is a different size and has a unique personality, which provides us the opportunity to create the optimal match between horse and participant. EQUI-KIDS has a highly engaged and influential board of directors. EQUI-KIDS fundraising comprises 92% of its gross annual operating revenue of $1,075,00.00. EQUI-KIDS continually improves the methodology and evaluation of its services to develop the most positive, cost-effective, efficient services and organizational structure possible. EQUI-KIDS provides therapeutic interventions to help develop healthier, more productive citizens, creating a positive impact for our community today and in the future.

Thank you for helping us to change lives one stride at a time!
