    about Michelle Davis Equi-ED

In 1993 Equi-Ed Therapeutic Riding program was founded to serve the California counties of Sonoma and Napa. Since that time it has offered a therapeutic modality whose benefits are uniquely provided by a horse. Being on top of a horse the rider recieves, through the horses 3-dimensional movement, the sensory input of a natural human gait; for individuals with physical limitations this is an experience that cannot be obtained or replicated in a clinic setting. To be free from the hinderances of a wheelchair, crutches, walker, learning disability, visual impairment or other special need, the rider experiences an unparalleled sense of freedom. To take up the reins, guiding and controlling the horses movement, provides a sense of empowerment many individuals with disabilities feel has been taken from them. The connection and communication that occurs between the rider and their mount doesn't need language or arms or legs for that matter! These specially selected horses give their riders the opporuntity to participate in a mainstream sport or leisure activity where they experience a sense of inclusion, acceptance and competance that may not happen anywhere else in their lives.

Every Stride Impacts a Life- help Equi-Ed's horses continue to make this a reality.

Our team will be comprised of Equi-Ed students, volunteers, staff and anyone from the community that would like to be a part of our efforts. For anyone who raises a minumum of $75.00 they will receive a 2012 Hoofbeat Challenge T-shirt and be eligible for other prizes. The highest earning winners (4 Equi-Ed students and 4 community members) will receive a Sunday trail ride together at Chanslor Ranch in Bodega Bay sponsored by Horse-N-ARound Trail Rides, and enjoy a catered box lunch on the grounds!

Join us for this fun and very worthwhile endeavor!
