Hooves  on  the  Horizon
Using horseback riding and horsemanship, the Hooves on the Horizon program provides therapy and recreation opportunities to children and youth who have a diverse range of physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities.  Experiences with a horse can positively affect a person's life.  Horseback riding can improve a rider's strength, balance, postural control, muscle tone, coordination and motor skills.  While riding, one can also make gains in sensory processing, confidence, and emotional well-being, as well as communication, cognitive development and ability to focus, among other things.
 
Lessons are taught in a private or small group format, by a teacher who is trained in Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) methods. 
Our facilities include an indoor arena so lessons can continue all during the year.
For more information about therapeutic riding, visit the PATH website at www.pathintl.org
