Sunrise, Inc. is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) affiliated center. We provide equine-assisted therapy to individuals of all ages with a wide variety of disabilities. We also work with other agencies to provide enrichment experiences for disadvantaged children. We currently are working out of an old facility that was built as a temporary home in 1983, which we have outgrown and which is now a maintenance problem. We are in the process of purchasing a farm with much more space and will be initiating a capital campaign to build a new, state of the art facility.
Research is finding more benefits all the time for the use of horses in helping people to improve or overcome physical disabilities and cognitive or emotional problems. We have seen some amazing results over the years, since our beginning in 1980, and are excited to be able to improve on and expand our services.
