This winter, we will be registering students for our 10-week Spring Session which starts March 27, 2023. Read more about our therapeutic services on our Programs page. Contact us for more information or for a registration packet.
We are always in need of volunteers, particularly to help with lessons and with caring for our horses. Prior to each spring and fall session and our week of day camp, we provide training for horse leaders and side walkers. For more information, check out our Volunteers page.
Our April Vera Bradley & Thirty-One Bingo Fundraiser was a resounding success! Future Bingo events are tentative at this time as we are reviewing the newly created application process that is now required by the state of Virginia. Our Bingo events are held at John H. Enders Fire Company’s Social Hall. Read more about it on our Events page.
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
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
