ABOUT

Helping Horse Therapeutic Riding Program has been providing horseback riding lessons to children with disabilities for over 20 years.  Last year we provided over 1,000 hours of riding instruction!  We expect to serve 40 riders this season.  Therapeutic horseback riding has proven physical, mental and psychological benefits for individuals with disabilities.  The movement of a horse actually simulates the movement of normal human walking, and the ability to control a powerful horse is an enormous confidence builder.  Some of our riders who have been non-verbal for years have spoken their first words on horseback.
