Operating out of two facilities the Fairgrounds barn hosts programs for children and adults with physical and mental challenges. The second facility is right next door at Stonehenge Farm and houses the Stable Programs.  The Stable Program is an integrated wellness therapy that combines somatic psychology, relational horsemanship and the use of mindfulness practices as a way of helping clients find an alternative way to dealing with their distress.

Volunteer recruitment is on-going as 1-3 volunteers per rider are needed for upwards of 130 riders per week. Volunteers are needed for 1 to 2 hours per week with a preferred commitment of ten weeks. No lifting is required but some degree of physical fitness is needed for trail walking and uneven surfaces. Experience with horses or people with disabilities is helpful but not required as training is provided.
