Hoofbeats For Hope

 Equine Assisted Activities for Kids and Adults with Special Needs
"Changing Lives...One Hoofbeat At A Time!!!" 



Mission Statement

This experience has multiple opportunities for students to increase physical, social and communication skills. Students develop muscle strength, balance and coordination while riding.  The thrill of riding a horse is an accomplishment that is immeasurable to students who have difficulty with mobility, self-control and/or communication.

Riding provides more than just a good time. Research shows that students who participate in horse assisted activities can experience physical, emotional and mental rewards. For individuals with impaired mobility, horseback riding gently moves their bodies in a manner similar to a human walking gait, which improves strength and flexibility.  Hoofbeats For Hope is where “horsing around” really makes a difference.
