Special Needs Rider Event
Sports Challenge

You will bring a smile to disabled indiividuals by encouraging and motivating them to have fun. Our riders learn basic horsemanship skills and improve physically with better muscle tone, balance and posture.

Therapeutic riding with the aid of our horses and our wonderful volunteers challenges and motivates our riders to improve their emotional well being, building self confidence and self-esteem--the I Can Do It attitude.

YOU can be a horse leader, side walker or groom and tack our wonderful equine therapists. Classes are held on Tuesday, Thursday evenings and all day Saturdays.
