Organization Information

Mission Statement

Kids & Horses is a non-profit organization that serves children and adults with disabilities in Northern Nevada through the use of horses. Kids & Horses offers a variety of services, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and adaptive riding lessons.


Welcome to Kids & Horses, home of acceptance, fun and learning with HORSES!

Serving Those with Special Needs in OUR Community

Kids & Horses was founded in 1999 and is one of only two premier PATH certified therapeutic riding centers in Northern Nevada, an area where children and adults with special needs are under-served.

Education Resource for the Community

Classes in horsemanship and riding lessons are offered to all members of the community - providing an avenue to come together for fun, learning, growth, and to share our passion for horses and the outdoors.

Giving Horses a Second Chance

Many special horses have enjoyed a second chance with Kids & Horses when age, injury, or other circumstances necessitated a change in career.


Kids & Horses delivers enormous value with modest financial resources.

The organization’s founder, Sam Waldman, believed so strongly in the value of equine therapy that he established Kids & Horses with his own funds, at his own ranch.

Approximately 50% of the students in the Kids & Horses program are on scholarship.

Students that can pay only pay a 1/4 the cost (or $35 a lesson) to the program because of generous donors, foundations, and fundraisers.
