Leave a Legacy

“Ordinary people making An Extraordinary difference”

“How planning today makes A difference Tomorrow


The Equestrian Therapy Program offers equine therapy for students with impaired motor function. The movement of horses both relaxes and stimulates unused muscles, building muscle tone and improving co- ordination and balance.

Riding has been proven effective for the treatment of various disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, down syndrome, autism, paralysis, and many other disabilities.

Our instructors receive specialized training and certification, which enables them to provide our students with activities that exercise the spirit, as well as the mind and body.

Why legacy giving?

Remembering The Equestrian Therapy Program in your estate plan:

  • Allows you to make an impact on lives after you are gone.

  • Allows you to express your values and wishes by donating a portion of your estate to causes important to you.

  • Gives comfort to family members who know your values and wishes were honored after your passing.

  • Assures our organization can touch the lives of disabled riders for years to come.

  • Your giving provides life-long benefits for people with disabilities. Horseback riding has proven to relax and stimulate muscles, build muscle tone, and improve coordina- tion and balance for people with Cerebral Palsy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, down syndrome, autism, paralysis, and other disabilities. For many, our program provides them a chance for improved muscle coordination as well as independence, in- creased self-image and confidence. Your donation to our organization makes a difference in the lives of each and every one of our riders.
