WHAT WE DO
At BEAMING, we transform lives through equine partnerships.
Through interaction and connection with horses, our program participants are able to learn, heal and grow, empowering them to improve their physical, mental and emotional health.
We embrace diversity, we promote inclusion and we celebrate those with diverse abilities. The BEAMING Barn is a safe, nonjudgmental community gathering space where all are welcome.
Our goal is to Change Lives, One Ride at a Time.
Our programs include Saddle Up for Success (individual lessons), Dragons in Flight (advanced lessons) and Partners in Riding (a partnership with local school districts) for children with challenging physical, cognitive or neurological disabilities; LAUNCH (group classes) for troubled and hurting youth; Horses, Hearts & Heroes for veterans; RideStrong for those affected by trauma; and we are the second in the nation to offer Riding in the Moment, a program for seniors with early- to moderate-onset dementia, Alzheimer’s or other forms of memory loss.
In addition, we offer regular Equine-Assisted Memory Cafes which invite seniors in the community with memory loss and their caregivers to improve their quality of life by experiencing the benefits of equine-assisted services. We also hold two annual camps (two sessions each), Hold Your Horses Teen Camp for troubled and hurting youth, and Autism Camp for children with autism.
BEAMING was founded in 2004 and is a member of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) International.
