November 28 is GivingTuesday

Save the date for the biggest celebration of generosity of all time! 

The Making Strides Foundation will host a week-long fundraiser beginning on Tuesday, November 28 through Tuesday, December 5! We have two generous supporters, Equine Performance Veterinary Services and Wade Rhodes, who have pledged to donate “bonus bucks” as our fundraiser meets certain milestones, maximizing your “giving” impact! Your donations support our therapy and adaptive riding programs for children and young adults living with disabilities.

Help Us Meet Our Goal!

Your Impact

Specifically, this fundraiser supports our group programs for 2024 which includes inclusive field trips, equine assisted learning groups, inclusive horse camps and our new "Weekend Workshop" series which rolls out this spring. 

 

As we look ahead to the new year, we anticipate our group program bookings to triple. Your generous contributions help us continue to offer discounted or free group services and further our mission. Increasing group programming allows us to reach even more children and young adults with the therapeutic partnership of the horse.

The support of our local community is key to helping our clients thrive. Learn more about the services we provide below!

Outpatient Therapy

We offer outpatient occupational, physical, and speech therapy services to children and young adults with disabilities. We incorporate horses as therapeutic partners during our sessions. Equine movement improves fine and gross motor strength and coordination, promotes speech, improves tone and core stability, and aids in sensory regulation.

Adaptive Riding Lessons

Therapeutic/adaptive riding lessons are recreational horseback riding lessons tailored to meet the specific needs of the rider. The goal of these lessons is to learn horsemanship skills while supporting the cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being of the client.
