Services and About Us

We provide horseback riding instruction classes for people with disabilities - up to two students at a time. Classes generally run for 30 minutes, which may include time for mounting and dismounting. It is important to arrive on time and ready to go to maximize the time spent with the horses!

We incorporate a variety of games, tasks and riding experiences to accommodate each individual's needs and goals. A typical lesson may include learning how to groom a horse, learning to trot, playing bowling on horseback, going for a trail ride, finding hidden objects, or many other activities. Parent / guardian input is always welcome as we work with the student to achieve their goals and challenge them with new skills!

 

We have been a registered charitable organization since 1985.  Our Registered Charity Number is 11910 8132 RP0001.  We rely soley on donations and volunteering to keep our program running, and receive no government funding.  We have several dedicated volunteers, many of whom have been with us for several years, who work tirelessly to maintain our program and provide quality assistance to our riders. They have various backgrounds that include riding (both Western and English style), horsemanship, riding instruction and working with people who live with disabilities.

 

Our volunteers and parents also help out by generously working in community bingos and other events to assist with program funding.  Riders are also expected to pay fees, which are $20 per class to help offset costs, however, riders are never turned away due to their inability to pay.
