Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Spring Therapeutic Riding Session had to be canceled, as were our Fun with Horses Day Camps. We were able, though, the hold a 4-week Mini-Session from late May into June for returning students who met a specific criteria.
We are currently in Phase Two of our reopening – our 8-Week Fall Session – which began September 3rd, and are registering students for our 10-Week Spring Session which will begin March 22, 2021.
Read more about our therapeutic services on the Programs page where you can download the Spring Session flyer. Contact us for more information or for a registration packet.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our March and July Bingo Fundraisers were both canceled. Our next Vera Bradley & Thirty-One Bingo Fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, November 14th at John Enders Fire Company Social Hall in Boyce, VA. We will be updating our Events page and Facebook page with details and ticket information. Meanwhile, we have been meeting the challenge of raising needed funds by holding online fundraisers and providing other opportunities for people to support our therapy horses such as being able to donate directly to our feed store accounts. Check out our Donations page to learn more about this and other opportunities.
Therapeutic riding makes a difference and changes lives!
For people with disabilities and those who are at risk, the horse and its environment can provide unique healing and learning experiences. Under the watchful eye of a certified instructor, trained volunteers, educators and health care professionals, a student’s interaction with a horse can be therapeutic as well as a fun and freeing experience.
Therapeutic riding is fun. It also produces results. Some of the benefits one can expect:
Improved coordination and muscle tone
Improved posture and balance
Improved gross and fine motor skills
Increased range of motion
Improved attention and concentration
Improved sequencing and planning
Improved flexibility in thinking
Increased self confidence and self-cont
Increased understanding of consequences
Improved social interaction
Increased empathy and empowerment
