Therapeutic  Riding

Depending on the child and their attention span we start out with a 30 minute session and then work up to 1 hour lessons.  Each child/person is different with different learning abilities so we require a 30 minute assessment to determine their abilities on a horse.
We can help a child with confidence, core strength, attention, patience, teamwork, etc....  Please come out a visit us and meet Korey.  He is one of our autistic students that has come a long way in just a few months. He started out on our resident pony and has since graduated to a full size horse.  He has started cantering and loves to go on trail rides.  He has participated in many of our horse shows and won many ribbons. We are very proud of Korey.
