Sharing our passion

Watching the successes of our students with our horses is one of our greatest joys. We’ve seen students come on crutches and learn to walk after riding our horses. Children who could barely speak, start to string together full sentences and ultimately, conversations. And people with little confidence begin to believe in themselves and have hope again after interacting with our horses. It is inspiring to see the transformations.

These accomplishments are only possible with a highly trained herd of horses and experienced team of instructors and equine specialists. Our instructors are some of the best in the business. Many have worked with horses their entire lives, riding, training and showing. And the majority of our team has been teaching therapeutic riding for 10 years, and many 20 years and more.
