Horses, hearts, children and adults is a mix that enhances life and encourages physical, emotional and developmental growth. It’s a chance to participate in an activity that brings joy to hearts and smiles to faces.  Sometimes it’s a time of connecting in a physical way and sometimes it’s a time of heart connection, but it’s  always a time to share from the human heart to the equine heart. We are sure that there are people in your life who would benefit from spending time with horses.

As a non-profit community service your support is valuable to allow us to fulfill our goals of providing for those with a wide range of needs to have a beneficial experience with their equine friends. Our programs are diverse and meet a variety of needs. Participants can engage in ground work, horsemanship and riding lessons

By participating with Gaitway you will be providing an amazing opportunity for those with special needs, both adults and children.

We will be glad to speak with you personally and explain more fully what Gaitway to Equine Experiences has to offer.  

Check out the donations page.  All donations are eligible for tax receipts.

Thank you for your support. 

Gaitway will function in a 2-fold manner:

  • to provide equine experiences through programming

  • to supplement costs for maintaining horses, program and  to enable individuals, regardless of age or ability, to participate in equine experiences.
