Riders with disabilities and the volunteers who work with them can gain great satisfaction through this therapeutic horseback riding program. With the help of trained and caring volunteers, riders can improve balance, coordination, posture and muscle tone. Horseback riding also increases self-esteem, self-confidence, discipline and social growth. But more importantly, riding is fun!

This program is currently not active, but check back for future updates.
