Thank you for your interest in participating in our programs at Strongwater Farm. Below you will find general information on our REGISTRATION process:
The registration process for all of our programs is identical. Once a completed Participant Registration Form (see below) has been received by our office, the information provided will be reviewed by our staff to assist us with scheduling and determining the goals and the appropriate program for each rider. Program openings are determined based upon the needs of the individual and the availability of resources.
Following review of the registration form by our staff, prospective riders will be contacted to schedule a pre-riding assessment which must be completed prior to final enrollment in a program. A $50 Assessment Fee is payable at the time of the assessment. Due to the nature of therapeutic riding and other equine related activities, there are individuals for whom Strongwater Farm programs are deemed inappropriate during the evaluation process and such individuals are neither accepted for enrollment nor eligible to continue in Strongwater Farm programs. This determination is made on the basis of physical, behavioral and other limitations. Participants applying for the therapeutic riding programs will be required to provide a Medical History Form signed by a physician on or before the date of the pre-riding assessment. For further information on our programs or program registration contact our office at (978) 851-5540.
Strongwater Farm reserves the right to determine if it is unable to serve an applicant or that continuance in a program by a given individual is inappropriate due to unavailable resources and/or safety concerns including PATH, Intl. guidelines relating to contraindications for participation.
Under Massachusetts Law, an equine professional is not liable for an injury to, or the death of, a participant in equine activities pursuant to Section 2D of Chapter 128 of the General Laws.
