About Us Riders Volunteers News & Events Programs Opportunities To Help

ur horses are the foundation of our program. Each horse is carefully screened and selected for its calm, tolerant, and willing temperament. Our horses work hard and are aware of the importance of their work. They are sensitive to the needs of their riders and often demonstrate extraordinary patience. Their loving nature has a calming effect on our riders. Their gentleness encourages a strong bond of trust. Our horses come from a variety of backgrounds. We invite you to stop by and meet some of them.

Why Use Horses to Achieve Our Goals? A horse's gait closely emulates that of a human. No other modality mimics the walking gait of a human and stimulates virtually every movement system of the body.
