Founded in 1985, the B.O.K. Ranch Therapeutic Horseback Riding Program is dedicated to providing horseback riding lessons to children and adults with special needs.
The B.O.K. Ranch is the only *PATH Intl. Premier Accredited therapeutic riding program on the Peninsula. Since, B.O.K. holds this accreditation, the program is held to the highest industry safety standards. All of the B.O.K. Ranch riding instructors hold a PATH teaching certification. This means that they have all been tested and passed a year-long student teaching and mentoring program; have mastered skills in both horse care and human care; they have passed tests at a variety of levels in riding, teaching, horse knowledge, and human health with an emphasis on special needs and different medical diagnosis.
B.O.K. Ranch brings the benefits of therapeutic riding to close to 100 individuals each week. We serve riders with over 30 different disabilities, from ages four to seventy six. There is no maximum age, as long as the rider has no physical or medical contra-indications.
