Since 1983, SIRE has been improving the quality of life for people with special needs and disabilities through therapeutic horsemanship. Annually, we serve more than 300 clients with the people power of over 30,000 volunteer hours and the horsepower of some 27 horses at three locations across the greater Houston area. We hope you will join us in helping our riders thrive!

SIRE is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
