New Website Coming Soon!


Main Stay Therapeutic FarmWe’re proud to announce Main Stay’s new name and logo! For many years we’ve felt as if we’d outgrown our name. With more and more clients working off the horse through Equine Assisted Activities our name no longer fit our program. Then, with the addition of the Animal Assisted Activities when the small animal herd was absorbed from The Light Center, we knew we had to begin fresh in order to incorporate all Main Stay had grown to be.


Incorporating traditional therapeutic riding, EAA, AAA and a gardening program steered us into a fresh new logo combined with a small name change. Changing from a therapeutic riding program to therapeutic farm made perfect sense as we fully embrace the power of the Main Stay property. Knowing that Main Stay has never truly fit the mold of a therapeutic riding program…we wanted our new logo to also “not fit the mold.”



The choice of the cupola came from the idea of what cupolas represent…

      Family, Farms, The Midwest, Horse Farms

The color represents:

The Heart Center


As you can see – we put a lot of thought into this new direction, much in the same way we chose each program added to Main Stay. We ask how does this fit within our mission; how does it serve the community; does it match our values and keep us moving forward in a positive and heart-based connection within our plan? We think they do!
