RideAble provides equestrian experiences for children, youth and adults with a wide range of disabilities. The RideAble program offers an opportunity for students to meet and adjust to a horse in a safe and supportive environment, followed by instruction in riding and horsemanship.
RideAble is an equestrian program for people with disabilities, based in Eugene (Goshen), Oregon, RideAble is a non-profit corporation, EIN 93-1172229, providing basic horsemanship opportunities for those living with special needs since 1995.
RideAble offers private individual lessons and small group classes of up to four. Lessons are planned to meet each rider's individual needs and groups are selected to include riders with similar skills and stamina. As their lessons progress, students become more knowledgeable about horse care, management of the horse and specific riding skills. These skills increase independence and self-esteem and enhance the enjoyment of the intrinsically therapeutic relationship between horse and rider. Each member of the instructional staff at RideAble is certified by the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) or Professional Assoc. of Theraputic Horsemanship International (PATHIntl).
