Synergy Stables is an inclusion program designed to bring people living with and without disabilities together in partnership with horses and nature.

Graciously hosted by Beacon Hill Equestrian Center in Cato, NY; we believe bringing individuals closer to each other in nature, brings them closer to themselves.  Synergy Stables utilizes trained personnel to adapt equipment and/or teaching strategies to promote excellence and well-being.

Program Information:

All lessons are taught by a PATH Intl. Certified Instructor and are scheduled privately.  This is a fee based program; please contact Trisha Williams for further details.
