Cloud Dancers Therapeutic Horsemanship Program, Inc. (Cloud Dancers) is an Albuquerque-based recreational horsemanship program founded in 1982 for people with disabilities. We are a 501c(3) non-profit organization located in Corrales, New Mexico.
Our certified instructors and trained volunteers focus on the riders'abilities. While many of our riders have serious physical and developmental challenges, they can overcome many of the barriers they experience in their everyday lives by using skills learned while riding. A person with physical limitations can find new opportunities for mobility on a horse, while others may experience increased confidence, pride, and responsibility.
