Mission Statement

Our Mission is to enrich the lives of individuals living with disabilities.

Description

Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of individuals living with disabilities. Cornerstone is located at Creek Hollow Ranch in Ramona which is a 350 acre state-of-the-art equestrian facility that is home to over 100 horses, in addition to a herd of American Bison. Our facility is like no other in San Diego and offers our students many diverse opportunities. In addition to traditional therapeutic riding, we are able to offer a true ranch environment with abundant wildlife, large oak groves, access to hundreds of acres of trails and nature walks, in a peaceful and serene environment. Cornerstone's unique environment enhances the therapeutic experience not only for our students, but for their families, our employees, and our volunteers.

Cornerstone was founded on the guiding principle of services to others, commitment to our community, education, and making a positive impact in the disabled community. Cornerstone is a member of the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA) and is dedicated to following the standards set forth by NARHA to ensure safety, quality, and success for our clients. We actively participate in on-going education to maximize the quality of the lessons we provide and the overall experience for each student. Cornerstone offers a safe, life-changing haven where our students can thrive.

Would you recommend Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center?

by Jeffrey M. from Ramona, CA (October 5, 2008)
The helpful, healing process between man and beast is simply so good, it must be experienced. Whether human and dolphin, human and dog or, in this unique and very special case, a human being and an equine, a good, positive bond, interaction and visual, let alone tactile, secular miracle such as the interaction of a horse and person is literally indescribable. I am completely sound and and able bodied and an athlete and horses have changed my life in such a positive and wonderful way, I believe it will be the same for everyone. There may be a wild exception to the rule like an allergy or something but I am not so sure I believe that these things are not manifested and cannot be overcome. The meeting of an eight to twelve hundred pound animal who is more frightened of the predatory human, with our ears pinned back and our eyes set close together in a constant vertical or attack posture to commune with a prey animal to the point of sitting on its back without it shaking us free? Wow!
