Description

Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center is a 501c3 organization, founded in 2008, dedicated to enriching the lives of children, teens, and adults with physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities, as well as providing programs and services for wounded service members and their families. Cornerstone is a member of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) with Advanced Certified PATH instructors leading our therapy programs. In 2008 Cornerstone created Operation Saddle Up, the first program of its kind in San Diego, dedicated to providing programs specifically designed for combat-injured service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who have lost limbs, suffered traumatic brain injuries, battled with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and other war related injuries and illnesses. Cornerstone has served over 700 men and women in the US Armed Forces. We believe it is our duty and responsibility to support wounded service members and their families by playing an active role in their recovery process.

Would you recommend Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center?

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!
