Pony Partners

Children struggling with literacy (or those who just need a bit of encouragement) will benefit from our "Pony Partners" Program.  Our traveling ponies go to a local elementary school, where students read to them.  This program is also available upon request at our facility.

Equine Assisted Activities

Those unable to ride can still benefit from other equine assisted activities and therapies.  Participants will gain confidence, improve motor planning skills, and increase functional abilities by interacting with the horses during structured groundwork activities under the guidance of qualified instructors.

Horses. Hope. Healing.

The "Horses. Hope. Healing." program focuses on helping participants recover from traumatic events (such as Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs) by providing a safe, encouraging environment and positive interaction with the staff and horses.  Several evidence-based studies indicate that equine assisted activities and therapies significantly help those who have undergone negative life events.

Regular Riding Lessons

We offer riding lessons to 'typical' (able-bodied) participants who simply want to learn riding skills. Our quiet horses and experienced instructors can help riders learn horsemanship skills and reach their goals.  The cost of the lessons is competitive and lesson monies generated help to support our therapeutic riding program.

Summer Day Camp

Our summer day riding camp for typical/able-bodied riders offers horse-related activities, crafts, games (and riding, of course!) using our quiet therapy horses.  Children will learn riding and horsemanship skills as well as how to care for horses. Of course, the socialization with other like-minded children is valuable, too! The monies from the camp will also go to help support Ridin' High's therapeutic riding program for children with disabilities.
