Welcome to Special Equestrians

Horses . . .   


For 34 years, Special Equestrians has been harnessing the healing power of horses to improve the physical, mental, and emotional well being of individuals with disabilities through the equine experience:

  • Riding horses improves strength, balance, posture and flexibility.
  • Working with horses helps improve focus, concentration, relationship skills, and social interaction. 
  • Best of all, horses help everyone develop self-confidence, independence, and trust in themselves and others.

We are committed to serving anyone who can benefit from our services, regardless of their ability to pay.

We are happy to announce that Denise Quirk, Executive Director of Special Equestrians, was interviewed on “FCP Conversations Online.” FCP Conversations Online is a digital broadcast featuring community organizations that share FCP’s mission and are making a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
