Equessense is a grass-roots program spawned out of a growing need for alternative therapy and inclusive recreational opportunities for atypical individuals. Its purpose, focus and mission is to utilize horses to enhance the lives of exceptional people and give them opportunities to shine. The trained and dedicated staff (all volunteer) is extremely invested in helping every rider reach his or her highest potential.
Our rider’s range of abilities and needs is wide. They come from many different backgrounds and places. Each one of them is a unique individual and every single one of them is simply extraordinary. They each have specific needs to which the amazing horses of Equessense instinctively respond. All of them have their own moving story about how experiential riding has changed their lives.
They are developing skills and confidence as they learn responsibility, compassion and cooperation. These positive traits will assimilate into their characters and profit them for the rest of their lives.
Without the help and support of our sponsors, some of these miracles would not be possible.
