Located on Fuller Road in Burt, EquiStar’s mission is to enrich the lives of people with disabilities through equine related activities. The 24-year-old horseback riding facility helps disabled riders reach milestones in their physical development and communication skills. Under the guidance of CCE-Niagara, EquiStar will continue to provide equestrian-related activities that offer therapeutic benefits for children and adults with varying conditions, including Cerebral Palsy, developmental delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Trisomy 21, anxiety, and more.

In June, CCE-Niagara assumed management of EquiStar’s operation and reinstituted the therapeutic riding program. A new session began on June 4th, with 33 riders currently enrolled and back in the saddle.

EquiStar offers 6-week therapeutic riding sessions that consist of one 45-minute class per week. The cost to ride is $150 per session, and the next available rider session begins on September 17th. The 4th rider session will begin on October 29th.

If you’re interested in enrolling in classes, please contact Chris Wright at 433-8839 ext. 232 or email her at for more information!

The EquiStar Therapeutic Riding Center is located at:

2199 Fuller Rd.
