Healing HOOVES
(Helping Out Our Valued Equestrian Students)

Healing HOOVES is a horseback riding program for children and adults with and without disabilities. With the help of the program’s 30+ horses of all shapes, sizes, and breeds, individuals learn about the care, handling, and riding of horses. Horseback riding lessons teach students the proper and safe riding techniques; horseback riding therapy sessions work with students with disabilities as they strive to meet physical goals and enjoy the ride and company of the horse. Information and facts about horses, horse care, horse health, handling and training are woven into lessons and sessions as the students learn more about their big, furry friends. From the miniature horse KneeHi all the way up to Zeus, the big Appendix Quarter Horse, the horses are rarin’ to go with their friends!

 

Our horses are therapy trained and tested, and have been ridden by two-year-olds, senior adults, and quadriplegics, as well as by children with autism, cerebral palsy, and more. The horses are matched with their riders according to size, behavior, personalities, and temperaments of both the rider and the horse. A bond of trust and love is encouraged by the staff between the horse and rider as they partner together to teach each other more about life.
