Mission Statement

Stable Pathways - Horses in Service to People Living with Disabilities Our mission is to empower, strengthen, and inspire those living with disabilities through horse-assisted activities.

Description

In 2009, we began Stable Pathways horse-assisted therapeutic activities for people living with physical and cognitive challenges. We offer programming so they can experience the many benefits of riding or interacting with horses!

For a rider, the movement of the horse can improve balance, stability, muscle tone, flexibility, core strength, focus, and coordination.

And there is more to horse-assisted therapeutic activities than just physical benefits - a relationship with a horse may increase self-confidence, promote self-discovery, and encourage sensitivity and nurturing towards animals and people.

Volunteering at Stable Pathways is the best! I was looking for a place to go trail riding, and then I stumbled upon this program. I have been volunteering with this organization for almost two years and have loved every moment of it. It is a very rewarding experience. I look forward to seeing the horses and the kids every week. I highly recommend joining us at Stable Pathways, you won't regret it!

I really did start volunteering at Stable Pathways because of the horses and I have stayed for the riders. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started there in the Spring of 2011 but it has become one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! It's a small, well run program with great leadership and wonderful volunteers.
