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

May 30th – This is the last day of riding for the Spring Season.
July 7th- August 11th – Our summer 6 week riding session. This will be on a Tuesday morning and limited to 10-12 riders. We only have 1 session at 9:00 with 2 classes going at once. It is just too hot for both horses & volunteers to ride more than 1 session. If you are interested, please talk with Betty.
