Referral Rewards Partner of the Month

April Referral Partner

Referral partner of the month

Forward Stride is a nonprofit headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon, that works to enhance the quality of life through horse-centered activities and therapies. For 20 years, the organization has used the healing powers of horses to help build relationships, confidence, and new skills. Their programs support individuals through care and therapy, helping them reach physical, emotional, and cognitive milestones while making lifelong friends.

Forward Stride embraces a philosophy of safety and inclusion for all their programs. From a riding program to equine assisted psychotherapy to community partnerships, they work to make their engagement accessible and beneficial to all. The organization has seen people make great ‘strides’ toward their personal success. One success story comes from MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility where youth were able to practice “new skills in a safe environment”, resulting in “a decrease in problematic behaviors and an increase in utilizing prosocial skills” from self, staff, and family reports. A participant shared, “ mom passed away and at first it didn’t hit me but more recently it has. So being able to have a non-verbal therapeutic group to go to really helped keep my mind on the positives.”

Forward Stride’s substantial impact is made possible by the help of donations and volunteers. Their annual fundraising gala is on June 1st. Tickets are available on their website. To learn more about the organization and how to donate or volunteer, you can visit their website at
