Challenged Champions, situated on a sprawling rural property outside of Ottawa, offers equine-assisted activities and therapies for people with a variety of special needs. What began in with a determined individual taking horses to the Putnam County Fairgrounds twice a week has blossomed into a five-day-a-week, participant nonprofit agency offering physical, behavioral and occupational therapy for people age 4 and older. The agency boasts a series of barns and pastures, along with a heated indoor arena that allows students to ride in all weather.
