Founded in 2010, the mission of the non-profit organization is to: improve the lives of children and adults of all abilities through interaction with horses.

SEC provides year-round therapeutic riding lessons, recreational riding lessons and private/special events. The stable specializes in providing quality equine assisted activities and therapies for children and adults with physical, cognitive or emotional special needs. SEC’s therapeutic riding program incorporates education and exercise, utilizing the beneficial movement of the horse to increase physical mobility and expand range of motion while learning riding skills. In addition to equestrian skills, riders also increase focus, attention span, mindfulness, cooperation, teamwork, self-sufficiency, independence and life skills.

SEC is a member center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH).
