Our Mission

Therapy…Recreation…Education On a Farm                                      

Special Strides is a non-profit organization devoted to improving the lives of individuals with special needs. With a unique combination of therapy, horses, and the natural environment, individuals achieve goals appropriate for therapy, recreation, and education. Special Strides provides all individuals an opportunity to “Improve their lives… one stride at a time” regardless of financial status.

Special Strides is a multi-disciplinary therapy clinic and adaptive riding center providing equine assisted activities and therapy (EAAT). Located on beautiful Congress Hill Farm in Monroe, NJ, Special Strides is a place where children and adults are inspired to discover their strengths through engagement with horses, therapy, and other farm activities. The therapeutic facility offers a variety of options including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, adaptive horseback riding, adaptive carriage driving, experiential learning, and equine facilitated learning. A strong team of experienced therapists and instructors, equine specialists, and dedicated volunteers develop and implement therapeutic strategies that foster growth based on each individual’s strengths and their treatment/recreational goals.
