Welcome to STARR!

We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization located in
Decatur, IL. Our mission is to provide therapeutic horseback
riding for children with special needs.

Benefits of therapeutic horseback riding include:

  • Increased self-esteem
  • Improved confidence
  • Enhanced muscle tone
  • Better coordination
  • Plus, it's fun!

STARR is proud to be a 100% volunteer organization. None of
us are paid. Every penny donated goes directly into
providing for the therapy horses and helping special needs
children in the community!
What We Provide:

STARR provides group therapy riding sessions for special needs children in
June and July. We also can host field trips for schools and organizations as well
as riding birthday parties! STARR operates April through October.

Contact us today at 864-2463 if you want to volunteer or have a riding field trip
or birthday party at STARR.  If you want to visit STARR at a time when there is
not a scheduled event, please call to set up an appointment.

We are sorry, but we do not offer trail rides, riding lessons, or board horses.
