Located in a beautiful rural setting on a working horse ranch north of San Francisco, Giant Steps offers life-changing experiences to people of all ages with a wide range of disabilities. Our mission is to enrich and change the lives of children and adults with disabilities through the extraordinary benefits of therapeutic riding and related equine-assisted activities.
Each week, riders come from throughout seven Bay Area counties to interact with their 1,000 pound "therapist" in a safe and secure environment and achieve goals that they never before dreamed possible. Our focus is not on their limitations, but what they can do, and the results are extraordinary.
Our riders range in age from five to eighty-seven years old and each have unique challenges. Lessons are individually designed to suit each rider's particular need, ability and stamina and are consistent with predetermined goals that are established in conjunction with parents, caregivers, physicians and other therapists.
