Stirrups ‘n Strides Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are a PATH member (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International). Our center and all programs are taught by PATH Certified Riding Instructors. What makes therapeutic riding "so special?":
The bonding between horse and rider and the relationships with instructors and volunteers has been known to help even "proven to improve" self esteem, self confidence and social interaction. Plus, it's just plain fun for everyone!
For the physically handicapped rider, horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves horses' bodies, naturally mimicking human gait. Studies have shown that therapeutic riding provides the following benefits:
• Psychological bonding
• Lifting of the spirit
• Increased attention span
• Improve balance, posture and flexibility
