Therapeutic Horseback Riding lessons are taught by a PATH International certified therapeutic riding instructor with a team of 1-3 volunteers per rider. We currently operate Monday-Saturday, providing lessons both mornings and afternoons, depending on the day. Riders are in group or private classes ranging from 30-45mins for each lesson during a given session. Riders participate in tasks and games that encourage physical strengthening and cognitive improvement, while learning basic riding skills. The emphasis is on developing riding skills in a safe environment that is both therapeutic and fun. Specific goals are set for each rider at the beginning of a session based upon input from the rider’s parents, physician, and therapists.
