About Stable Influence Charity Programs
P.O. Box 54006, Phoenix, AZ 85078, US
Stable Influence Charity Programs offers youth and adults with physical, mental, and/or emotional challenges the opportunity to explore new horizions and focus on new goals unhampered by their limitations. Horseback riding allows riders to focus on abilities -- and the sky's the limit as they gain strength, coordination, and self-confidence.
Stable Influence offers therapeutic horseback riding for children and adults with physical, mental, and/or emotional disabilities. Theraputic riding is helpful in developing balance, coordination, and strength in riders with disabilities. In addition, riding promotes independence and self-confidence as riders learn to ride and care for their horses in a friendly and supportive environment. Finally, therapeutic riding provides recreational opportunities to many individuals for whom such opportunities are severely limited. Stable Influence Charity Programs offers benefits to the community as it is a labor intensive sports therapy program requiring up to four volunteers for each rider. We offer classes in four locations, five days a week. See Pictures of our 2nd Annual Horse Show at: http://www.public.asu.edu/~aujlg/
