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

The power of therapeutic horsemanship to change lives has been known for hundreds of years. Scientific studies and those who participate note benefits including:

  • 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.
