It took a little while, but somebody gave her a boost, walked next to her and promised her that she could succeed. Our goal is to provide physically, mentally and emotionally challenged people an opportunity to improve their lives through horsemanship.

Imagine how it feels to a child who makes her way through life on crutches or a walker to be aboard one of our therapy horses. Imagine, too, what it must feel like to be told every day about all the things you cannot do. And then to come to a place where there is something challenging and exciting you can do.

We don’t think horses are magic – well, actually we do – but we know that learning a new skill will improve the way our riders see themselves and give them a reason to believe that when they succeed at horsemanship they can succeed at other things.
