Simple Changes was founded in 2005 with the knowledge that riding and caring for horses significantly improves the lives of individuals with disabilities. We provide equine assisted activities to children and adults with physical, cognitive and emotional challenges. We also assist warriors in transition and work with youth-at-risk from local schools.
We opened our doors with two horses, 20 riders and a handful of volunteers from the community. We now have 50 clients, six horses and a waiting list. In addition to our main location on Mason Neck, we also have a satellite location in Catlett, VA.
Growth of Simple Changes has been steady and sure. We were recently chosen by The Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington as one of the 70 outstanding non-profits in the area.
By creating a place that offers joy, hope and a little bit of adventure, Simple Changes opens up a world of possibilities.
