Therapeutic Riding

​Therapeutic Riding lessons are taught by a certified Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International (PATH, Intl.) Instructor. Students benefit physically, emotionally, and socially from participating in therapeutic riding and can choose either group or private lessons.


  • Physical Benefits may include improved balance, increased trunk/head control, increased strength in legs, gross motor skill improvement
  • Emotional benefits may include the development of a bond with their horse, friendships with fellow students and volunteers
  • Social benefits may include learning how to respectfully interact with their horse, volunteers, fellow students, and instructor


A typical therapeutic riding lesson includes:

  • mounting (either with a ramp, 3-step block or 2-step block)
  • ​Warm-up Exercises
  • Skill Review/New Skill Introduction
  • Skill Practice
  • Games/Trail Rides
  • Cool-Down
  • ​Dis-mounting








Volunteer Program


Helping with our students is one of the most rewarding experiences that you can have.  Volunteering in our classes not only improves the lives our our clients, but it will improve your life as well. It is said that there is something about the outside side of the horse that is good for the inside of a man (woman). Come find out what that magic is.  Volunteers currently are needed on Tuesdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all day and Saturday mornings 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.


Our schedules are flexible to meet your needs and we can accommodate volunteers only able to join us a couple of times a month to those that would like to be here a few days a week.  We also work with students seeking to fulfill their services hours.  You can easily sign up on our web site - just follow the sign up tab and click on volunteers.  From there we will call you to schedule an orientation that fits in to your schedule!  Thank you for considering being a part of our team!
