Location:  Lyman, Maine

Carlisle Academy is a New England premier integrative riding school, transforming lives through horses. Building upon the reputation and success of the Equest Therapeutic Riding Center, founded in 1998 on a farm in Lyman, Maine and impacting the lives of hundreds of children and adults with disabilities, Carlisle Academy is strengthened by an integrated mission and expanded program offerings. Their hallmark hippotherapy and adaptive programs are enhanced by the addition of para-equestrian sports, traditional equestrian education, and field training courses.

They offer three different full and part-time clinical and educational internships for undergraduate students. The Internship program at Carlisle Academy is created for high school students, college students, recent graduates, or individuals exploring the field of equine assisted activities and therapies. These interns undergo supervised practical training in the areas of physical and occupational therapy, health and human services, or exposure to therapeutic riding. These internships may be eligible for university or high school credits. All clinical and educational internships are fee-based programs with a tuition associated with each type, as well as prerequisites and an application/interview process. See their website for more information.
