Our Organization

 

SPIRIT Open Equestrian Program is dedicated to healing the body, mind and spirit and providing activities, where we educate the participant on life skills.  We promote awareness, by utilizing the interaction between humans and horses – on the ground or in the saddle.  Our participants can apply these skills in their lives, beyond the barn.
At SPIRIT, we use horsemanship and Equine Assisted Activities to reach therapeutic goals for a wide range of disorders, to improve basic self esteem and to teach about communication, trust, responsibility, partnership, and empathy.

We are a nationally recognized, fast growing 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

VISION

The vision of SPIRIT Open Equestrian Program, Inc. is to create a strong positive and stable environment that fosters the healing, growth and personal development of our participants and staff, using interaction with horses.
