NSETC is the beginning of a dream for others. Our dream at NextStepETC is to bring excitement and build confidence in our horse loving friends with intellectual disabilities. Thought we love working with all of our friends, we started our horsemanship journey to take riders with disabilities beyond the therapy arena. We strive through adaptive horsemanship to take them the NextStep if you will. NextStepETC trains riders with disabilities to take to the trails and enjoy their horse friends in the wild. We still carefully control the training and riding areas with safety being our priority; however, the overall feeling is riding the trails like their friends and family. Riders based on their unique abilities and desires can move from the arena to practice trails and even the open trail all with specially trained equines and staff.
