BEAMING Inc. stands for Building Equine Assisted Mobility into New Growth.

BEAMING Inc. provides equine experiences for participants with special needs to enhance quality of life. Our motto is: Changing Lives One Ride at a Time!

BEAMING provides a journey of discovery through equine experiences to fill a gap in meeting physical, mental and emotional needs of individuals. We create connections for all involved by facilitating compassionate and non-judgmental relationships between participants, families, instructors and volunteers.

Beaming serves a variety of client populations with individuals anywhere from 4 years old and up. Individuals interested in riding can find applications for our variety of programs. While our riders must be medically cleared to get up on horse-back, those who are not able to safely participate in riding are able to participate in ground work with individually developed lesson plans that are designed to meet their specific needs. BEAMING Inc. is about more than riding horses – we also focus on coarse and fine motor movement, tactile senses, increasing strength and dexterity, mental health, anxiety relief, and mindfulness. We truly do have something for everybody!

Over the course of 2018 we were able to provide over 147 participants to be involved in our programming. These individuals include youth at risk, children and adults with mental disabilities such as autism, mental health disorders such as depression and PTSD, domestic violence victims, and veterans who have served our country. BEAMING was established in 2004.

BEAMING is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that focuses on helping to enhance the lives of our riders. We function solely on donations and grants from generous donors across the Fox Valley and Northeast Wisconsin. Without our generous donors, such as The JJ Keller Foundation, Lynne & Robert Keller, Fox Valley Surgical Associates, The Siekman Foundation, and Ellis Quarter Horses Farm , we would not be able to continue on with our mission. So, on behalf of Beaming Inc., thank you!

If nothing else, please remember that BEAMING is a one-of-a-kind facility, focused on helping to improve the lives of each and every individual that walks through our barn doors. The non-judgmental attitude and friendly environment that our staff and volunteers provide is unmatched, as are the services that we provide. When you ride with BEAMING, you aren’t a client or a patient, you are family.
