People with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities are discovering the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding. Whether it’s a five-year old with cerebral palsy or a 45-year old recovering from a spinal cord injury, horseback riding provides challenges as well as amazing rewards. For someone with a disability it can be the road to recovery. The first step to joining our program is to obtain a physician’s referral. This is to ensure that therapeutic riding would be safe and beneficial. We suggest that this be done before other forms are completed, as if therapeutic riding is not endorsed by a Physician, we will not be able to assist you. Once you have the physician referral form completed, you will also need to fill out a few other forms. The required forms and some information forms can be found on the website.
