Equine Education Foundation, better known as EEF, was founded in 2004 as a 501c(3). The main mission of this organization is to educate children and adults through the unique traits of horses. A more defined goal is to improve and facilitate the education and integration of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Sensory Motor Deficit Disorder (SMDD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Families Experiencing Challenges using the therapeutic body language of the horse.
EEF offers unique opportunities for children and adults to experience the joys and benefits that therapeutic riding (TR) has to offer. Sessions are tailored to each rider’s needs and are private sessions of 30 minutes each. Family involvement is highly encouraged. Sessions include getting used to the horse’s movement and then progress to body awareness, spatial awareness and tactile awareness of both the horse and the rider’s body position while using both ground sessions and sitting on top of the horse.
