Therapeutic riding and horsemanship programs at LiftMeUp! are changing lives every day.
LiftMeUp! is an equine-assisted services program providing safe and effective instruction for children and adults with varying abilities. We teach riding and horsemanship skills adapted to each rider’s cognitive and physical needs.
With the unique presence of our therapy horses and the skills of our caring PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) certified instructors, LiftMeUp! helps riders gain confidence, strength and self-esteem in our friendly, fun environment.
LiftMeUp! is a premier accredited center with PATH, Intl. serving the community for over 40 years. Through our team of PATH-certified instructors, volunteers, and 8 horses and ponies, we offer therapeutic riding lessons 7 days a week!
Participation in the LMU program has helped our students to sit or stand unassisted, walk independently, improve their focus and attention span, and enhance their social and communication skills. Through riding lessons, riders also develop a special bond with their equine partner, developing communication, confidence, and self-awareness skills along the way.
Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, or Speech Language Pathology sessions assisted by equine movement.
Experiential learning to promote development of life skills for educational, professional and personal goals through equine-assisted activities.
Helping people build or improve their connection with horses through the physical practice of yoga.
Due to nationwide shutdowns during the Covid-19 pandemic, we were required to put all of our riding and horsemanship programs on hold for several months while continuing to feed and provide for our truly indispensable equine partners. Even after our re-opening, we have only been able to welcome back a limited number of clients due to continuing restrictions and precautions. Despite the challenges facing our society today, we continue to strive to provide an essential service for our community. We ask that you consider making a special gift today to help us keep our programs going.
