Founded 1998

For over a decade, Strongwater Farm has improved the quality of life and health of thousands of children and adults with special needs in the Tewksbury/Wilmington area by providing professionally supervised, equine-assisted activities and therapies. The mission of Strongwater Farm is to enhance and enrich lives by providing education, physical activity, social opportunities, and emotional support to our clients through equine-assisted activities and therapies. We strive to create a safe, welcoming environment where individuals can learn, grow, and heal through the healing power of the horse. We are one of only two therapeutic riding centers in northeast Massachusetts with Premier Center accreditation from the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International (PATH Intl.). Strongwater’s instructors are licensed and certified by both PATH Int’l and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Many instructors have additional certifications in related disciplines such as physical therapy, expressive arts therapy, special education, and mental health, ensuring high quality, professionally trained instruction. Strongwater is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization located in Tewksbury, situated on 12 acres of land leased from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. There is a stable for twelve horses, indoor program area, outdoor riding ring, sensory trail, and numerous paddocks on the property with the right to utilize 450 acres of adjacent conservation land containing miles of trails, and event venue for our riding programs. Strongwater offers therapeutic programs to a wide range of individuals with physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges. A grateful parent’s words: “Riding at Strongwater has given our son so much! It has helped tremendously with his anxiety. He becomes so calm and relaxed after riding. We have never seen any other activity have such a transforming effect on him. The staff at Strongwater is very understanding. Everyone is experienced and believes in our children with disabilities”
