We work with all types of youth and adults
with special needs with the help of our
regular and student volunteers.
WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC RIDING?
Therapeutic horseback riding is a form of therapy for individuals with
physical or mental disabilities or developmental delays. As each
individual is unique, so are their needs. Each individual has a
specialized riding session created for them by a Therapeutic riding
instructor or a health professional.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THERAPEUTIC RIDING?
Therapeutic riding has been shown to help riders increase range of
motion from head to toe, increase balance and riding responses,
enhance function and promote independence.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
VOLUNTEERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!
Volunteers are a very important part of any
Not-For-Profit organization. Anyone over the age of 14
