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:
