About One Step Closer Therapeutic Riding

Location:

15770 Foothill Avenue, Morgan Hill, CA 95037, US

Mission Statement

Our equestrian organization uses the human-horse relationship to help the rider achieve his/her full potential - physically, socially, and spiritually - to be all that God intends for them to be.

Description

One Step Closer Therapeutic Riding is an adaptive horseback riding program. We offer therapeutic riding and other equine-related activities to individuals with physical and/or emotional disabilities, including our military veterans in partnership with Veterans Affairs Palo Alto. Whether on horseback, or playing ground games, these activities assist healing and physical development, stimulate learning, and build confidence and self-esteem. All lessons are planned and supervised by a PATH Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor.

Specific One Step Closer equine related activities include:

  • Adaptive riding lessons
  • Veterans Program
  • Summer Horse Camp
  • Special events for Families of Fallen Soldiers

One Step Closer is a Premier Accredited Center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) and a 501c non-profit serving the county of Santa Clara, California. Founded September 2006.
