Therapeutic Riding Program
Therapeutic Riding is an equine-assisted activity for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well-being of individuals with diverse needs. Therapeutic riding can benefit riders in many ways including coordination, core strength, concentration, social interaction, and self-confidence. A disability does not have to limit a person from riding a horse. In fact, experiencing the motion of a horse can be very therapeutic. Since horseback riding rhythmically moves the rider’s body in a manner similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength.
Each session is facilitated by a PATH certified instructor and lasts one hour.
All sessions offered are done in a confidential atmosphere that respects individuals’ privacy.
If interested, or if you know anyone that would benefit from this form of equine-assisted therapy, please
Making an Impact
“I am so thankful for the entire Hooves of Hope experience. From the first contact with the office administrator to our wonderful instructor, we have been enveloped in compassion. My daughter lost her father after a short battle with cancer on December 20, 2018. In one short semester, her confidence and skill have soared. Her smile is beginning to return.”
