At Equest Center, horses are a catalyst for encounters that change the lives of the physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally challenged individuals it serves. Equine therapy creates breakthrough experiences for clients that provide transforming hope to their families and loved ones.

Located on 34 acres in Rockford, Equest Center is one of only three equine therapy facilities in Michigan to own its own barns and it is the only program of its kind in the area to have facilities supporting year-round care. This continuity of care is vital for the 185+ riders who depend on it for therapy.

None of its services would be possible without a dedicated army of volunteers who donated 54,200 hours last year alone. Equest continues to expand its facilities and reach so it can accommodate more of the riders who are on its waiting list.
