About All Riders Up
265 Mattson Road, Garnet Valley, PA 19061, US
All Riders Up , a non-profit charitable organization, has been established to provide area residents with special needs a way to exercise, improve balance and coordination, strengthen core muscles, and develop self-confidence by learning to ride our beautiful horses. We are unique in being able to give our students and their families the comfort of knowing that a physician and several registered nurses are directly involved on-site. Because our program is conveniently located on twelve acres in a residential area, its’ home-like atmosphere provides a quiet, relaxed environment to build confidence in apprehensive and beginner riders.
Since 1969, the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International, Inc. (PATH), has provided standards for Equine Assisted Activity and Therapy (EAAT) programs worldwide through its accreditation of nearly 800 member centers. We are a PATH Center Member, whose instructors are PATH certified. PATH was formerly called NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped). Centered Riding is an innovative way of expressing the classical principles of riding, using body awareness, centering, and imagery. We embrace the philosophy of Centered Riding and have two Centered Riding Instructors available.
With the help of specially trained staff, certified in therapeutic riding instruction, and a team of volunteers, we offer 45 minute private and semi-private lessons.
We'll work with your schedule.
