Mission Statement

LifeStriders provides life-enhancing, physical and psychological experiences and therapeutic riding services, to individuals with special needs.

Description

Today, LifeStriders is one of the state's largest, and fastest growing, therapeutic riding centers.

Therapeutic Riding Lessons

Working with horses can accelerate both mental and physical therapy because it provides such strong motivation for learning and healing. Through Equine-Assisted Therapy, children and adults with disabilities can experience the physical and mental benefits achieved through the human-horse connection.

Project P.R.A.I.S.E.S

Preparing Responsible Adolescents In Specialized Equine Skills is an equine facilitated mental health program designed for at risk youth that focuses primarily on character building, teamwork, violence prevention, and compassion.

Volunteering and Mentoring Program
