Our 24-acre farm can accommodate groups of all sizes and ages, including those with special needs. Our therapeutic riding and equine-assisted learning programs are available for one-time or recurring visits, as well as equine-assisted occupational therapy. We have hosted specialized schools, mainstream schools, community groups, and day camps.

"This is the third year that Lethbridge Layton Mackay Rehabilitation Centre has been bringing a group of clients with varying disabilities to the Hippotherapy program at Équi-Libre. We have seen improvements in our client's balance, posture, communication and fine motor control as they work on their goals on horseback with the professional team of staff and volunteers. It is rewarding to watch our client's faces as their comfort level and confidence increase as they get to know 'their horse'. Who thought learning and therapy could be so much fun!"
