El Centro de Equinoterapia del Surest Kuxtal is an organization dedicated to helping people, especially children, grow through contact with horses.  They are located on Constituyentes and Avenida 125 in front of the gas station. 

Equine therapy is the discipline of using horses as a means to provide metaphoric experiences in order to promote emotional growth. The horses provide an excellent way for troubled youth to react when they are otherwise therapy resistant.  Children can learn about themselves, other people and interacting with the world through working with horses. It's not about teaching riding or horse care skills and there is no need for any previous experience of horses. 

Equine therapy has proven to be particularly useful for children with autism, attention deficit disorder (ADD) and bipolar disorders - all of whom may find it difficult to communicate, interact with other people and carry out instructions.

The results are startling. Even those showing severe anti-social and aggressive behavior become calmer and more communicative.
