About Us Riders Volunteers News & Events Programs Opportunities To Help

ur riders come to us with a wide variety of disabilities including autism, brain injury, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, multiple sclerosis, emotional and developmental disabilities. Riders of all ages are helped via our three programs; approximately 75% are under age eighteen.

Goals Attainment Scaling is a method used widely in scientific fields to measure outcomes. High Horses started using Goal attainment scaling (GAS) for measuring outcomes of individual riders. The purpose of this project is to advance understanding of the impact of therapeutic riding on program participants and to build the therapeutic riding industry’s capacity for gathering, summarizing, and communicating effectiveness data. High Horses initiated the use of GAS and then collaborated with other centers in New England, High Hopes, in Old Lyme, Connecticut, Southern Vermont Therapeutic Center, in Brattleboro, VT and UpReach Therapeutic Riding Center in Goffstown, NH. With the data collected so far we can clearly see that therapeutic riding does have a positive impact on its participants. Therapeutic riding is making a difference for the better for those that participate.

Current reports from medical and education professionals are obtained for each rider and studied by our professional staff. We coordinate efforts with over 25 social service agencies. Our instructors use this information to develop individual lesson plans and goals and to document each rider's progress.

We require a completed application packet and each rider meets with an instructor or therapist before being scheduled to ride. Please note that High Horses serves as many riders as we can safely and effectively accommodate.

Depending on individual needs, a rider may be scheduled for either private or group lessons, may ride with either a therapist or a certified instructor, or may be offered a spot in our un-mounted program. The High Horses staff and medical consultants are happy to discuss these options with you.

Our riders and their families gave High Horses a straight "A" approval rating on our recent year-end survey. Each year we welcome many returning riders as well as many new riders-we look forward to hearing from you!
