Therapeutic Horseback Riding lessons are one-on-one that typically involve grooming, tacking up the horse, leading, riding, and other barn related activities. Each lesson engages a team consisting of the rider and horse, an instructor and one, two or three volunteers. Lessons are designed to offer a consistent environment of acceptance and success. We work diligently to create engaging and stimulating activities that build each rider’s horsemanship skills. For more information, visit our Therapeutic Horseback Riding program page.
