El Dustberry was founded in 2001 to originally serve cancer patients, people with special needs, and youth at risk. Since its inception, we now provide services for all. El Dustberry is named after the founder's father Elliot, friend Dusty, and cousin Barry, who all lost their lives to cancer. El Dustberry provides equine-assisted therapeutic activities which means we use nature and horses to learn and heal. We have specialized programs for cancer patients, those with autism, ADD, depression and grief, behavioral issues, and more. We teach by using gentle and natural horsemanship and bareback riding, with our rescue horses being the foundation of all our programs. We also do outdoor classrooms for schools and youth groups.
