Special Equestrians provides several different Equine Assisted Activities to assist individuals with special needs. See a glimpse of our programs below to determine what can best fit you or your rider's needs! 

Therapeutic Riding

Therapeutic riding is our largest program, with nearly 100 participants each week. Participants learn riding skills in a group of their peers to encourage physical, cognitive, and social development.


Using a device called the MiraColt, which was specifically designed to mimic the movement of a draft horse, this program provides an opportunity for more physically challenged riders to benefit from the movement of a horse in a safe and controlled environment with one-on-one physical instruction tailored to their needs.


Horsemanship is an adapted class for participants who wish to learn more about caring for, leading, and the behavior of their horse. This is an ideal program for riders who may be unable to ride due to a condition or disability that is not appropriate for mounted activities.
