Mission Statement

Our mission is to enrich the quality of life of individuals with disabilities and their families through unigue, non-competitive therapeutic riding instruction.

Description

We provide therapeutic horseback riding to physically, mentally, and emotionally challenged children. This unique form of physical therapy allows our students to develop balance and self-confidence while learning riding skills. Children also benefit from the social interaction with other students, volunteers and instructors. By focusing on each riders' ability rather than disability we have enjoyed a high rate of sucess. Our program is on-site accredited and nationally recognized by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association.
