Therapeutic riding, horsemanship and wellness programs at LiftMeUp! are changing lives every day.
LiftMeUp! is an equine-assisted facility providing safe and effective programs for those with varying abilities. We teach riding and horsemanship skills adapted to each rider’s cognitive and physical needs. We also offer programs to improve the mental health and well-being of teens and adults.
With the unique presence our therapy horses and the skills of our caring PATH-certified instructors, LiftMeUp! help participants gain confidence, strength and self-esteem in our friendly, fun environment.
Horse Shows at LiftMeUp! and the annual TRAV Horse Show at the Virginia Horse Center provide opportunities for riders to show off their equestrian skills in a friendly yet competitive setting.
In 2020, the nationwide COVID shutdowns required us to put all of our riding and horsemanship programs on hold for several months, while we continued to feed and provide for our truly indispensable equine partners. Despite the challenges, we continued 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.
