Mission Statement

To Improve Physical, Cognitive, and Emotional Fitness Through Therapeutic Horseback Riding, Equine Assisted Activities, and Therapies.

Description

Our riders have many types of disabilities - Cerebral Palsy, Multiple sclerosis, Autism, Spina Bifida, Traumatic Brain Injury, Metabolic disorder, Intellectual disability and many more. Therapeutic riding addresses these disabilities by helping improve balance, increasing upper torso strength, even out walking gait using the three-dimensional movement of the horse to develop new muscle tone, improve fine and gross motor skills, increase self-confidence and allow some riders to move around freely for the first time in their lives. Each rider's disability is addressed differently according to their restrictions, age, and ability. We begin taking riders at the age of two, and we have riders up to the age of 70 at this time.
