Serving children ages five and up

At EQUI-KIDS, we strive to help children with special needs overcome obstacles and maximize their potential. Beginning at age five, we can offer assistance through many of our programs, including therapeutic horseback riding, equine-assisted psychotherapy, hippotherapy and our School Partnership Program

The EQUI-KIDS program offers support to children with special needs including, but not limited to Down syndrome, autism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, amputation, mental and physical disabilities and attention deficit disorder.
