Private and group riding lessons for children and adults with a wide range of different abilities. PATH Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors help riders develop physically, mentally, and emotionally in a caring and fun environment that empowers the rider in ways different from traditional therapy.
Our horsemanship program provides an experience with horses to promote self-awareness and the principles of relational growth. The human-horse experiential process teaches participants about themselves in a relational context and helps them become more aware of behavioral patterns and better understand healthy relationships.
In this technique the equine movement is used as a treatment tool within Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, or Speech Language Pathology sessions, to attain improved physical functioning. Specially trained therapists change the characteristics of a horse's movements and positions of the client on the horse to impact neuromotor, sensory, and cognitive systems with the goal of improving the client's ability to participate in daily life.
Week-long inclusive horsemanship camps for children and teens. Here, campers experience horseback riding, horsemanship lessons, arts and crafts, team building games and so much more! Each day of the week is structured and scheduled with multiple activity choices to suit everyone's interests.
