History

The Equestrian Center at Beverly Farm was established in 1993 as a part of the Development Training Program. Through the years, the Equestrian Center has transformed to service Beverly’s residents as well as the surrounding community. Equine Assisted Activities (EAA) blend the therapeutic benefits of horsemanship with fun and engaging activities. Whether it’s Special Olympics or summer camps, everyone has the opportunity to participate. Horses create opportunities that welcome and engage all.
