Therapeutic Horseback Riding

Enhancing the lives of individuals with special needs through therapeutic equestrain services...

Improving the Quality of Life

Through therapeutic horseback riding our students not only learn the basics of horsemanship but also gain skills that improve their daily lives. ....

Responsibility,Value and Purpose in Life

With a small staff, volunteers are vital in making our program a success and ensuring our riders get the attention and care they need. ....

Confidence is Instilled as Relationships are Formed

The experience stimulates independency, by using the horse's legs as the rider's own, and freedom that otherwise would be impossible. Miracles happen in our arena everyday in many forms: a smile, a word spoken, a step taken. ....
