What type of lessons do you offer?
We offer lessons to both children and adults with special needs. Lessons may be taught in western or english discipline at the instructors discretion, and often times will be interchangeable. Based on the rider's experience, they may or may not start off on lead with a volunteer assisting. All therapeutic instructors are PATH Intl. certified.
We also offer hippotherapy lessons. All hippotherapy lessons are conducted by a Physical Therapist (PT), Occupational Therapist (OT), or a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) who have been additionally trained and certified to use a horse as a treatment modality in a therapeutic riding setting.
