Giant Steps Therapeutic Equestrian Center, Inc. was founded in 1998, and is based on the belief that caring for and riding horses can be a powerful and life-changing tool for healing individuals with physical, emotional, and developmental challenges, as well as veterans returning from combat, and children considered to be “at-risk”. It is our mission to enrich and change the lives of children and adults with disabilities through the extraordinary benefits of therapeutic riding and related equine-assisted therapy. Our long-term goal is to improve the health outcomes of Bay Area children and adults with disabilities by providing them with affordable, effective and safe equine-based therapeutic services. It is our promise to never turn away a rider because of lack of means.
Programs include both traditional mounted lessons and ground work sessions focused on equine-facilitated learning. We are the largest year-round equine therapy program in the North Bay Area, and provide life-changing therapy that is clinically proven to be effective.
