What is Therapeutic Riding?
Therapeutic riding uses horse related activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people with challenges.
Who Can Ride?
Currently, the weight limit to ride is 190 lbs. Please be aware if you are close to this weight limit, eligibility will depend on horses available. As always, our priority is safety for both our riders and our horses. Thank you for your understanding.
