People, Horses, Hope

Through our history, horses have been helping us march into battle, transport heavy things and plow our fields. They’ve helped us run faster, jump higher and feel more powerful than we could on our own. Now people and horses are teaming up to help us become better versions of ourselves. Come out to Summit Equestrian to see all the ways getting out to our barn and working with our horses can impact you. 


When we sit astride a horse, we use a lot of the same muscles we use when we walk. It’s a great way to strengthen our core while stretching and toning other muscles, while simultaneously improving fine motor skills and balance.


Horses know what we feel before we say a word. Working with horses can expose emotional patterns we didn't realize we had. Developing a healthy relationship with a horse in a judgment-free arena is a great way to strengthen human relationships.


Through creating connections with horses, our clients are able to learn how to focus more clearly.


Social skill building in the arena with horses makes an impact. When you learn the importance of respect, direction following, creative thinking or leadership from a horse, it sticks with you.

Trail to Zero! 2023

On September 16, 2023 our Summit Equestrian Cavalry joined veterans from BraveHearts Therapeutic Riding on a Trail to Zero 20 mile ride through Fort Wayne. The purpose of the ride was to bring awareness to the crisis of veteran suicide. Each day we as a nation lose an average of 20 veterans to suicide.

It is BraveHearts’ greatest hope to reach Veterans who are currently battling suicidal ideations to let them know that they are not alone, their community cares, and equine-assisted services are here to help. Join BraveHearts on its mission to spread awareness of the healing power of horses and ultimately put an end to Veteran suicide.
