Therapeutic Riding Lessons utilize horses to positively influence the well being of people with disabilities. We provide these lessons to individuals with physical, emotional, and cognitive disabilities.
These can include, but are not limited to: Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury, CVA (stroke), Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit disorders, Depressive Disorder, Visual and Hearing Impairments, Anxiety Panic Disorders, and Eating Disorders.
The benefits of Therapeutic riding can be physically, sensorially, emotionally, cognitively, or socially for individuals. The age range of our students varies widely and therapeutic riding lessons are customized to each individual’s needs and abilities. We teach basic horsemanship and riding skills, as well as provide opportunities for social interaction, recreation, sport, and education.
Each lesson is conducted by a PATH certified instructor, a horse handler, and one to two side walkers to help support the rider. We incorporate things like stretching and educational games, and our ultimate goal is for each person to become an independent rider. Each rider will express themselves differently and we strive to let them explore and create their own equestrian journey. We have an outdoor ring, an indoor arena with state of the art dustless footing, a round pen, and trails including a sensory trail to explore.
