Mission Statement

"Helping people overcome life’s obstacles through equine interaction."

Description

Silver Lining Riding offers equine assisted therapeutic riding and other equine-assisted activities in the West valley to people with disabilities including autism, ADHD, PTSD, Asperger Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy to name a few. In a world that gives them restrictions on what they can do, we give them freedom on the back of a horse. Sessions are designed to meet each participant’s specific needs, collaborating with parents, therapists and school teachers as necessary. Our riding programs are designed to assist in reaching the rider’s goals including core strength, increased speech, improved motor skills, increased attention span, decreased anxiety, and an increase in confidence which ultimately results in a better quality of life.
