Mission Statement

To facilitate physical, social, and emotional growth and learning to individuals, families and communities through Equine Assisted Activities and Therapeutic Programs.

Description

Yellow Horse provides therapeutic riding on horseback to children and adults with disabilities and special needs. We work with our riders both mounted (on the horse) and unmounted (off the horse). With 14 horses under our care there is a lot to do on the farm. Our horses are trained to work with a variety of riders. Volunteers lead, sidewalk, groom, and care for our horses on a variety of levels. Yellow Horse strives to include everyone in our community within our program and encourages volunteers to reach out.
