Mission Statement

To promote the physical and emotional development of people of all ages and abilities through safe, therapeutic, outdoor experiences.

Description

We are excited to have completed our therapeutic riding program for the Summer Session and have now started our Fall Session. We hope to expand our program over the coming months which is dependent on volunteers! One look at the expressions on our riders faces as they work with horses is all volunteers need to see to fully understand the impact and significance of these encounters. The most frequent and compelling feedback we receive from our volunteers is that they get as much out of the experience as the rider does!
No horse experience is required! We serve people of all ages!
