Our Story

Lift Me Up! was founded in 1975 by Colleen Zanin, OTR. Over the years we have expanded our programs to incorporate progressive and innovative therapies. Today, at our PATH Premier Accredited Center, we teach more than 100 riders each week with virtually no waiting list. Our students range in ages from 3 to 60 years.


Our staff includes PATH certified instructors at registered and advanced levels. Our weekly lesson schedule includes therapeutic riding, summer camps for students and volunteers, yoga with horses, and our BITS (Back in the Saddle) Veteran’s riding program.
