Equine Assisted Services

Equine Assisted Services refer to multiple services in which professionals incorporate horses and other equines to benefit people. The horse is the common thread that unites the three following distinct service areas – therapeutic/adaptive horsemanship, therapy, and equine assisted learning.

Click the button below to dive deeper into these service areas and learn more about some of the holistic benefits of these equine and human interactions.

I love that my son’s class and the group of volunteers is diverse and inclusive. What an amazing way to show others what each child CAN do! While each lesson focuses on a riding skill, they are learning so much more.

Equine Assisted Services at Renew

Therapeutic Riding

It’s more than “just a pony ride”. At Renew, our certified professional staff considers the student’s life goals, and seeks to incorporate these goals into the riding lesson. Riding a horse is a holistic way to learn and to be challenged on many different levels.

Special Programs & Learning Opportunities

Renew offers a variety of special programs, like summer camps, homeschool and group home partnerships, and more, to help people in our community live more abundantly. We also periodically offer career development opportunities in the equine assisted services industry.

Speech Therapy

By blending the stimulating multi-dimensional movement of the horse with speech and language therapy, breakthroughs for those facing communication challenges become possible. Hippotherapy is a unique, fast-growing service and an exciting addition to equine assisted services at Renew.
