• Our therapeutic riding classes are taught by PATH certified instructors who teach riding skills in a welcoming, friendly, and supportive environment. We offer both group and private lessons for individuals with a variety of special needs and disabilities. Whether students are learning to ride independently or need the support of a horse leader and 1 - 2 sidewalkers to be successful, they will gain skills in physical, emotional, and social development.

     

    We start with an evaluation at the farm to help determine appropriate class placement. The cost of the evaluation is $55. Group classes cost $30 per week and private classes cost $45-60 per week, depending on class length. Lessons occur weekly within our spring, summer, and fall sessions. Services may qualify for payment via your Health Savings Account, depending on your policy's requirements, and financial aid is available.
