For riders ages 4 and up, sessions include both ground and riding interaction with a horse. Lessons are led by PATH(Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors. Ground time includes grooming, leading, and getting to know the horse. During riding, the client participates in a wide variety of activities and maneuvers based on their personal riding ability. Riding lessons may be in our new covered arena, on our Sensory Trail to help with sensory challenges, or on our Nature Trail to provide a different riding experience.
Beneficial to most with Physical Disabilities, Learning & Emotional Disabilities, Sensory Integration Dysfunction, Autism, Downs Syndrome, and Hearing & Visual Impairments.
Therapeutic Horsemanship groups include up to 4 participants for equine growth and learning. Each group member will choose a horse from our very diverse herd. Over the next several weeks, participants will develop a relationship with their horse and with the other group members. Veterans particularly enjoy the peer support offered in a group setting. Through a wide variety of ground activities, the participants will learn how to communicate effectively with their horse, horsemanship techniques, and a little about themselves.
