The mission of SIRE is to provide a community where horses help people with disabilities and challenges to live their best life.


  • Increased strength

  • Improved balance

  • Increased flexibility

  • Enriched social interactions

  • Improved coordination

  • Enhanced self-esteem

SIRE serves adults and children with a wide variety of special needs including, but not limited to cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome, multiple sclerosis, developmental delay, attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury.

Through equine-assisted activities and therapies, our riders experience the many benefits of therapeutic horsemanship described below.



SIRE’s vision becomes a reality. SIRE hosts LGI Homes CEO, Eric Lippar and other major businesses who donated their services and products to support this dream.

All SIRE Holiday Show

Congratulations to our riders who participated in the All SIRE Horse Show on December 9. We had 18 riders participate in friendly competitions and celebrate the holiday season with family, friends, staff and volunteers. Over $33,000 was raised to support the ongoing programs at SIRE and help to maintain the low-cost tuition for participants.

Set Your Sights on SIRE Clay Shoot

On December 8, teams braved the rainy weather and brought they best “shot”. Together with our Presenting Sponsor Lupe Tortilla and the Breakfast Sponsor Belco, we successfully raised over $53,000 for equine-assisted programs at SIRE. Thank you.
