Therapeutic horseback riding began in Europe
over 50 years ago. It grew from a spark of intuitive wisdom in a few dedicated
equestrians, into an established treatment method, now widely recognized by the medical,
psychiatric, and social service professions worldwide.

650 centers are monitored by the North
American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA), a non-profit service
organization dedicated to promoting horseback riding for the handicapped.

they have all shown vast improvements of their own.
Therapeutic riding is not covered by health insurance. To help keep the costs down
we ask our community for donations or sponsorships. These funds will go for facility upkeep,
grain, alfalfa, grass hay and more safety equipment.
The children are worth it as the results prove.
