Therapeutic Riding Classes

build strength and confidence 

Therapeutic riding classes focus on building strength and confidence for riders with social, motor, or other developmental challenges. On a horse, these children feel like "everyone else." They develop their skills at a remarkable rate. The changes seen on horseback carry over to other improvements in day-to-day life.

Weekly classes consist of 3-4 students, 6-15 volunteers, and a PATH (Professional Association for Therapeutic Horsemanship)-certified instructor. Each classes is 50 minutes long, starting at 6:00pm (to 6:50pm) or 7:00pm (to 7:50pm)

Classes are taught on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and Saturday mornings. Students are grouped according to age and ability, and are given goals provided by the instructor. Lesson plans are designed to provide students with the opportunity to succeed.

Scholarships are available for assistance with class fees.
