Celebration of Excellence
It all started 38 years ago with a field trip to an Andover horse farm for a small group of children with special needs. That trip led to the creation of Challenge Unlimited, a non-profit that has through the years served thousands of children and adults with disabilities through the wonder of therapy with horses. The organization has overcome daunting obstacles, both financial and operational, but has persevered. Driven by their mission and a spirit of determination and selfless contribution, they have expanded with innovative new programs including Special Olympics equestrian training, a teen Working Student program, and an indoor arena.
