Equine Program

The Equine Center for Excellence

Salem4youth is unique to other therapeutic boarding schools and residential programs because of its nationally known horse program. Called the Equine Center for Excellence, through the years, we have found that horses can be some of the best therapists a young man can have. Many of our students have never been around horses before they arrive at Salem. The soothing and trusting relationship that begins to develop between our horses and the students, often dramatically changes a student’s behavior and resolve.
