The Equestrian Center at Beverly Farm was established in 1993 as a part of our Development Training Program. Through the years the Equestrian Center has transformed to include our residents as well as the community. Equine Assisted Activities(EAA) provide a way to blend the therapeutic benefits of horsemanship into a fun and engaging activity. Whether it’s Special Olympics or summer camps, everyone has the opportunity to participate. Horses create a positive playing field that defies age, race, ability or disability.
The Equestrian Center currently has several staff members working with the help of countless volunteers.
