About Us

Who We Are

We are led by a team of equine experts and physical therapists who are dedicated to enriching the lives of special needs children. STARR has been featured on Illinois Stories, WAND TV, Mount Zion Tribune, and the Decatur Herald & Review. We are proud to say we have won annual safety awards. Our volunteers are the most dedicated around; many of our teenage volunteers have been inspired to go into health care fields.

Our Horses

We have three therapy horses that reside at STARR. While waiting to ride, children can watch the horses or walk on a short trail through our woods. We also have some playground equipment and plenty of seats in the shade.
