Since 2009, the founders of Great Strides Long Island have worked to make it possible for anyone to benefit from the horse/human relationship. We develop equestrian programs and seek ways to fund lessons for those who cannot afford to pay.  

At Great Strides Long Island, we believe in the benefits of equine assisted activities for children, adults, veterans - of all abilities.  Our equine friends can help us face all of life’s challenges with strength and confidence.  Whether you're a teenage girl with a love of animals, a child with CP or autism, or an adult that needs to get some exercise, horseback riding and other equine activities offer opportunities to strengthen your mind, body and soul.
