Our mission also is to provide a safe and loving environment for all horses boarded at our facility. Each horse is treated as one of our own. We desire to treat every customer as part of our family. We want everyone to feel welcome and have a good time when they come here.
What Do We Teach?
We teach beginner and intermediate horsemanship. We teach riding western or english. We also teach specialized classes in barrel racing, jumping and showing. My first desire for each student is to teach them to ride with confidence and knowledge of how to handle their horse in different situations. From this we go on to more difficult things as advanced trail riding and obstacle courses, barrels and jumps.
We teach on Tennessee walking horses and quarter horses. These horses are very versital in many different areas.
Therapeutic riding is an emerging field in which horses are used as a tool for physical therapy, emotional growth and learning. Many riders experience a connection to the horse that few sports can create. For those riders who cannot walk, the horse is their vehicle of transport. Not only does this help raise their self-esteem but it also teaches them essential skills. It improves balance, creates trust and creates a friendship between rider and horse.
For individuals with mental or emotional disabilities, the unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to increased confidence, patience and self-esteem. The sense of independence found on horseback benefits all who ride. The therapeutic qualities of horseback riding are recognized by many medical professionals, including the American Physical Therapy Association and the American Occupational Therapy Association.
Individuals of all ages, with a wide range of physical, cognitive and/or emotional disabilities benefit from therapeutic horseback riding and other equine activities. The types of disabilities and conditions served include:
- Brain Injuries
- Cardiovascular Accident/Stroke
- Cerebral Palsy
- Down Syndrome
- Hearing Impairments
- Learning Disabilities
- Mental Retardation
- Visual Impairments
