Celebrating our 44th Anniversary this year! Since 1975, Sebastian has been offering equine assisted therapy programs for children and adults living with a variety of physical, mental health and intellectual disabilities. The focus of our program is a safe, fun and healthy approach to growth and rehabilitation through equine activities and riding.
Offering much more than the traditional riding program, we strive to achieve physical development, socialization and learning through fun activities. We build balance and symmetry, increase reach and range of motion, develop speech and language, thought processes, planning, and sequencing. At Sebastian, we instill a great sense of success, confidence, and accomplishment in our riders. Not only do SRA students learn to ride, they groom, tack and care for their horse.
We use specially trained horses to meet our riders’ needs. We use special equipment and provide ASTM-SEI approved helmets with our riders’ safety paramount in all of our activities. SRA offers private and group lessons so we can best meet the individual needs of our riders.
SRA is open seven days a week, with the majority of lessons in the evenings and weekends when we have the most volunteer power. We have more than 280 students, 18 horses, a team of part-time instructors, physical therapists, managed by a program staff and a Board of Directors.
You can Volunteer
to help weekly, biweekly and/or at our 2019 Summer Day Camps!
We thank you for your continued support!
