Who we are:
Beyond Boundaries is a non-profit therapy center that utilizes horses as a therapy tool to increase specific motor, sensory, speech, and behavior/social responses. By non-profit, we mean that we operate primarily on a volunteer base with only one full-time paid employee. The ability to offer these one-of-a-kind therapy options in this way could not happen without the dedication and pure heart of so many. Beyond Boundaries is a place where individuals with disabilities and their families can create strong animal and human bonds and experience overwhelming therapy success.
What we do:
We were founded in 2003 and gained our non-profit status in 2004. We were founded to provide specialized "hippotherapy" to children in need. Hippotherapy is simply, treatment with the use of horses. Under the supervision of a Certified Physical, Occupational or Speech Hippotherapist and a Therapeutic Riding Instructor, the horse is used as a tool to induce medically relevant changes. They are using the horse to make improvements with the child, not just teaching them a skill. We also offer Therapeutic Riding, which teaches a child with a disability how to ride a horse independently with modifications under the direction of a Therapeutic Riding Instructor. We are pursuing efforts to become a Nationally Recognized Research Center for Hippotherapy services.
We host events throughout the year to raise money and awareness of our program in the community. Our events include:
- The Mane Event
- Boot Scootin' Bash
- Batting for Beyond Boundaries
- Golf Tournament
- Church and Community Youth Groups
- School Day Trips
Here's where our money comes from:
- Public Funds
- Private Funds
- Government Funds
Our services could not be provided without the support of our donors. EVERY gift we receive is important to us, no matter how big or small. We pledge to honor every donation by being good stewards of the funds we raise to directly support the children and adults that depend on us.
