Our Mission

We are a not-for-profit organisation that provides equine assisted activities to people with disabilities to develop and enhance physical, social, psychological abilities and educational progress. Located on our beautiful site in Sydney, NSW. 

Our Impact

We work with our community and volunteers to enable people with disabilities participate in equine activities to receive countless benefits such as; mental stimulation, physical strengthening & control, social integration, concentration, achievement, & well-being.

Our Community

Our Centre is run entirely by volunteers who assist in a variety of roles from horse welfare, running of activities, maintenance, gardening, administration and fundraising. There are lots of opportunities to be involved and learn!

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
