Partnering with our horses, we challenge individuals with special needs to

reach their fullest potential

Horses have the power to enrich our lives as

teachers, healers, and partners

Through our diverse line-up of Equine Assisted Activities & Therapies, InStride is committed to improving the lives of individuals with physical, mental, emotional, educational or behavioral challenges.

Strategic Partnering

Through our partnership with Easterseals Southwest Florida (ESSWFL), InStride can provide a seamless transition for clients who receive therapy from both our organizations.

Our therapists are independent contractors with Easterseals SWFL, ensuring our clients receive the highest quality therapy. Easterseals SWFL facilitates our internal billing, effectively bridging the Health Insurance/Special Needs of the organization.

InStride and Easterseals SWFL utilize our beautiful sixty-two acre therapy facility in Nokomis, FL to deliver: Physical Therapy (PT), Occupational Therapy (OT), and Speech Therapy. Additionally, InStride also offers Therapeutic Riding and Equine Assisted Learning Programs.

InStride operates according to the standards and guidelines of both the American Hippotherapy Association (AHA) and the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship. (PATH).

Community Partnerships

We are proud to partner with The Haven, Loveland Center, United Cerebral Palsy of Southwest Florida, and Oak Park School.
