Strongwater Farm has improved the quality of life and health for thousands of children and adults with special needs in the greater Boston area by providing professionally supervised, equine-assisted activities and therapies.
Our mission is to enhance and enrich lives by providing education, physical activity, social opportunities, and emotional support to our clients through equine-assisted activities and therapies. We do this while honoring our core values; integrity, compassion, healing, and safety. Our family oriented programs succeed through the efforts of our dedicated volunteers, knowledgeable staff and valued equine partners. We strive to create a safe, welcoming environment where individuals can learn, grow, and heal through the healing power of the horse.
We are one of only two therapeutic riding centers in northeast Massachusetts with Premier Center accreditation from the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International (PATH Intl.). Strongwater’s instructors are licensed and certified by both PATH Int’l and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Many instructors have additional certifications in related disciplines such as physical therapy, expressive arts therapy, special education, and mental health, ensuring high quality professionally trained instruction.
Strongwater is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization located in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. We are situated on 12 acres of land leased from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
