COVID-19 4.29.2020 UPDATE:


In order to keep our clients, volunteers and staff safe, to prevent the spread of this virus and to fully comply with Governor Evers extended Stay at Home Order, we have made the very difficult decision to suspend services indefinitely. We will notify families, staff, and volunteers with our re-opening date as soon as one is determined. If you are interested in exploring telehealth therapy options, please contact the office at 920.339.0700. 

Please read our updated closure statement.

The therapists on staff at Exceptional Equestrians are...well, exceptional. They have worked with children, teens and adults with a wide variety of needs, and they are generous in sharing their knowledge and experience with our families and community.


Below please find a listing of resources and activities that may inspire, challenge and entertain whether on a rainy day or in the midst of a pandemic.
