Programs are offered for Camp Kostopulos’ participants and for other agencies and organizations that wish to utilize the many types of horse related program options. Specialized equine programs will include working with those individuals with: physical impairments, cognitive impairments, emotional and behavioral differences, social difficulties, and those who are developmentally delayed. Our therapeutic horseback riding program for people with paralysis is supported by a Quality of Life grant from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

Staff: Are experienced in horse care, lessons, and working with special-needs populations.

Volunteers:  Volunteering is important to the equestrian program. Volunteers can help with facility maintenance and horse care.  They can assist equestrian instructors during programs and with horse exercising.
