What We Do
Helping people embrace their journey. And become more.
At Cloverleaf, there is an opportunity for everyone — children diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy or Down syndrome; teens coping with abuse; young adults struggling with substance use disorders; elderly adults experiencing early signs of dementia or veterans regaining balance while recovering from PTSD.
Through therapeutic horseback riding, equine-assisted learning, physical and psychotherapy incorporating horses, or other equine-assisted services, Cloverleaf helps to build and focus on individuals’ abilities rather than disabilities. Cloverleaf horses help humans learn, improve and grow in ways that strengthen their body and mind, build confidence and ability, and encourage resilience.
Discover all the possibilities that come from working and bonding with horses — at Cloverleaf.

Cloverleaf Equine Center, at O’Shaughnessy Farm, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that helps each individual realize their highest potential by providing equine-assisted activities to people with disabilities, youth-at-risk, recovering military personnel, and others in need in an inclusive, community setting.
To inspire and enrich people, families and communities through the power of the horse.
