Mission Statement

The mission of Kids & Horses is to provide safe and educational equine-assisted therapeutic riding to children and adults with disabilities.

Description

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 only premiere NARHA certified therapeutic riding center in Northern Nevada, an area where special needs children and adults 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.

Value

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.

70% of the students in the Kids & Horses program are on scholarship.

Students that can pay only pay a 1/4 the cost (or $25 a lesson) to the program because of generous donors, foundations and fundraisers.
