HorseAbility's future is bright. Every goal that has been set for this organization since its inception twenty-four years ago has been realized, especially having property and a facility solely dedicated to our mission.
``There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man`` - Winston S. Churchill
“Our daughter absolutely loves the horses and volunteering. The activity helps her focus & be calm as well as have a sense of accomplishment.”
“HorseAbility has brought so much happiness to Todd’s life. He has learned how to engage with people and cannot believe the connections he has made with the horses and how he has learned to ride. Besides the horses ,his other main love, is to help out on Camp Week. He told me once that, if you don’t help out at camp, you don’t know what you’re missing. He loves helping the children, and being with people he cares about. His volunteering through the years has given his self-esteem and purpose.”
Supervisor, SIBSPlace of South Nassau Communities Hospital.
Thank you for providing the joy of HorseAbility to the participants of SIBSPlace of South Nassau Communities Hospital. We are a community service program serving well children who have a sibling or parent with a devastating illness. Our mission is to provide support to well siblings through the development of coping skills so they can better manage the challenges they face during their difficult time.
For the past six years, HorseAbility has been a favorite summer activity of SIBS kids. The experience of grooming, feeding and riding a horse advances feelings of trust and a belief in oneself. We have found that your program fosters enriched educational opportunities that consistently promote empowerment skills and increased self-esteem. We are truly appreciative of your organized and caring staff, whose patience supports courage, determination and the desire of our SIBS kids to return to your program year after year!

Outreach is an important component of our organization. Our goal is to increase enrollment to our programs through working with corporations, foundations, other not-for-profit organizations, government and local communities so that we can offer more people an opportunity to benefit from therapeutic riding and equine-related activities.
