Beaming serves a variety of client populations with individuals from 4 years old to the elderly. Individuals interested in participating can find applications for our variety of programs. While our participants must be medically cleared to ride a horse, those who are not able to safely participate in riding are able to participate in groundwork and ride our Equi-cizer with individually developed lesson plans which are designed to meet their specific needs.
