Our equine assisted programs empower riders with physical, emotional, and developmental issues to help discover their greatest strengths while gaining self-confidence and self-reliance through the special relationship with a horse. This is the Ultimate Horse Power at CSTRC!
Our Mission is our passion. Equine assisted therapy is unique and specialized using horses as the classroom. Our therapy programs help our riders with emotional, behavioral and learning disabilities along with challenges from autism to cerebral palsy to rare diseases. Our riders get one-on-one instruction from their certified instructors; with our therapy horses this is a life changing experience.

The movement of a horse helps with mobility, posture, and alignment of the rider. This helps riders with challenges: i.e. Down Syndrome, Autism, and Cerebral Palsy.
“It is a joy and a blessing for my son to come to CSTRC for his health issues. So much good has come from his therapy here. It has helped with his speaking and balance issues and his favorite thing to do is be here with the horses.” — Jane Vlatch-Mother of a rider at CSTRC
