Description of Service
Offers therapeutic horseback riding to physically and mentally challenged individuals, senior citizens, ASD and ADHD, at-risk youth, cancer patients and survivors. We also provide opportunities for veterans to learn to ride in a safe and healthy environment and share that activity with other family members. Therapeutic riding increases not only physical strength and health, but increases self-confidence and self-esteem while reducing stress and anxiety. For our veterans it also provides camaraderie and an opportunity to develop a social network of peers.
Ramps and lifts available for wheelchair clients.
