Our goal is to share the horse / human relationship with all who can benefit


Throughout the ages, humans have found strength, support, beauty, and wonder in the horse. Since World War II, horses have been used to help veterans heal. In recent years, studies have shown that relationships with horses can help children and adults with special needs overcome challenges. Great Strides believes a relationship with a horse can bring strength of body mind and soul.
