LiftMeUp! is a PATH, Intl. Member Center serving the community for 47 years. Through our team of PATH-certified instructors, volunteers, and 13 horses, we offer therapeutic riding lessons and wellness programs 7 days a week! Participation in the LMU program has helped our riders to sit or stand unassisted, walk independently, improve their focus and attention span, and enhance their social and communication skills. Through riding lessons and wellness programs, participants have a special bond with their equine partner, developing communication, confidence, and self-awareness skills along the way.
LiftMeUp! was founded in 1975 by Colleen Zanin, OTR. Over the years we have expanded our programs to incorporate progressive and innovative therapies all in an inclusive setting. Today, at our PATH center, we teach more than 100 riders each week with virtually no waiting list. Our students are many ages, starting at age 5 and continue to senior citizens.
Our staff includes PATH certified instructors at registered and advanced levels. Our weekly lesson schedule includes therapeutic riding and group wellness sessions for at-risk teens and a growing First Responders Program. Every summer, we bring campers of all abilities together along with enthusiastic young volunteers for our Summer Camps.. On hold for now, but previously offered are yoga with horses, and our BITS (Back in the Saddle) Veteran’s riding program.
