Mission Statement: 

To provide therapeutic horseback riding, carriage driving, equine
assisted therapy, and Special Olympics to anyone with physical, mental, or emotional
challenges, and to improve their quality of life through horsemanship, competition, and
the healing power of the horse.

Vision: Empower. Enrich. Inspire.

Therapeutic Horseback riding is a powerful tool that can help people of all ages and backgrounds to heal, grow, and thrive. It offers a unique opportunity to connect with horses, learn from their natural instincts, and develop new skills and insights.

We believe that horses can help people heal in a variety of ways, including:
*Improving mental health: Therapeutic horseback riding can help people with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other mental health issues.
*Improve physical health: Riding a horse can help improve balance, coordination,
strength, and flexibility. It can also help reduce pain and improve range of motion.
*Improve emotional health: Horses can provide a calming and therapeutic presence. They can help people learn to manage their emotions, build self-confidence, and
develop trust.
*Improve social skills: Riding horses can help people learn to interact with others in a
positive and supportive way. It can also help them develop social skills such as
communication, teamwork, and leadership.

Together, we can empower, enrich, and inspire the lives of others through therapeutic horseback riding.

Here are some specific ways that you can take action:
*Volunteer your time. You can help to provide support.                                                            *Spread the word about the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding. Talk to your friends, family, and colleagues about your experiences.
*Donate to Stirrups ‘n Strides Therapeutic Riding Center Inc. Your donation can help to support the work of therapeutic horseback riding centers and make this therapy more accessible to people in need.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of others.
