Mission Statement

We are dedicated to providing equine-based therapeutic activities and recreational riding in a safe and supportive environment. We value diversity and recognize that all of our clients, regardless of their abilities, are deserving of respect. We strive to teach persistence, patience, and courage through natural interactions with horses. We are proud of the positive impact our organization has on the lives of our clients, our volunteer team, and our community. Not only a difference for a day but for a lifetime.


Prospect Riding Center provides therapeutic and recreational horseback riding and activities. Individuals with special needs benefit from our therapeutic riding which offers a holistic approach by welcoming the rider's family and caregivers to participate. Our recreational riding is available to everyone in the community and helps to financially support our therapy programs.
