Exceptional Equestrians

Founded in 1999 by pediatric occupational therapist Lisa Kafka, Exceptional Equestrians has its roots in pediatric therapy.

Today we provide hippotherapy, adaptive riding and equine-assisted learning programs that promote physical health and development, communication, community integration, self esteem, and achievement of functional skills.

One of the most comprehensive programs in the Midwest, we are the only center north of Milwaukee that meets these standards:

  • PATH center member

  • A hippotherapy clinical specialist with AHA and PATH certification oversees all programs, to

    • assess each rider

    • establish treatment plan, and monitor progress

    • choose the appropriate horse and equipment

  • A professional equine specialist with a degree in equine science selects, trains, and conditions all of our therapy horses.
