Equine Partners is a non-profit therapeutic riding center located in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. Our mission is to provide equine activities that promote the health and well being of individuals with physical and emotional challenges.
We work in partnership with the horse, the students/families, and therapists to create activities that support individual goals and to build a trusting supportive relationship with each student.
