Mission Statement

Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center is a place where individuals with special challenges come together, and where victories -- some dramatic, some modest, but all significant -- are joyously celebrated.

Description

Established in 1985, Rainbow is a non-profit organization that provides equine assisted activities to individuals with physical, educational, emotional, cognitive disabilities and other challenges. Our clients develop physical strength and better mobility, self-esteem and self-confidence while receiving benefits through an equestrian activity that accommodates their specific needs.

Under the guidance of PATH Intl. certified riding instructors, adaptive riding helps individuals experience physical and emotional rewards. In addition to our staff, a very dedicated group of volunteers and specially selected horses help to meet the needs of this exceptional group of people.
