About Us By partnering client, horse, volunteer and community, we offer riding opportunities that challenge disabled individuals to achieve their maximum potential which rewards their efforts.
Physically, horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves the body in a manner which is similar to the walking gait of a human. The horse’s complex series of movements uses all body muscles of the rider. The client experience increased strength, balance and muscle control.
Mentally, riding increases concentration, patience and discipline. It improves sequential thought processing, increases the individuals’ ability to communicate emotions and develops spatial awareness.
Emotionally, the unique relationship formed with a horse can help improve interpersonal relationships. It provides the opportunity for the client to bond with the instructor, volunteer and the horse, which develops the riders' trust. We provide a non-competitive environment for learning new abilities, self-discipline and improved concentration which builds self-confidence, self-esteem and coping skills.
Socially, riding nurtures a positive self-image. Disabled individuals often experience independence for the first time in their lives. They also develop an awareness of being part of a team. All clients have the ability to learn new skills and participate in a recognized sport.
We provide quality trained horses so each client will have a chance to experience the highest quality ride with maximum benefits.
