Organizations Filed Purposes: We improve quality of life through equine-based therapy to physically, mentally and socially/emotionally challenged individuals. Our unique program integrates academic, social and physical skills using the horse as a catalyst.

Equine therapy is recognized as one of the more progressive forms of therapy. It combines instruction in traditional horsemanship skills with concepts of physical therapy, occupational therapy and social/emotional therapies to improve the riders in balance, posture, coordination, strength and stamina. Riders also see improvements in areas of sequencing, spatial relationships and auditory short-term knowledge. Social and emotional benefits include improved self confidence, patience, emotional control, interest in the outside world and respect and love for animals and other people. The Equest Center also provides opportunities for senior citizens, military veterans and Gildas Club members to ride. We partner with colleges, medical teaching institutions and local high schools for hands-on learning and volunteer opportunities. The Equest Center served 185 special needs individuals each week before COVID restrictions and looks forward to operating at capacity.
