High Horses Therapeutic riding


High Horses Therapeutic Riding Program

Our mission is to improve the well-being of people with unique needs through a therapeutic equine experience.

Therapeutic horsemanship is a unique partnership between riders, horses, and certified instructors to enhance physical, emotional, social, cognitive, behavioral and educational skills in people of varying abilities.

Therapeutic riding engages the rider’s mind and body to promote increased self-esteem and confidence, as well as improve posture, balance, hand-eye coordination and muscle tone. Seniors, veterans, adults, teens, and children with physical, cognitive or emotional issues find strength, courage, and independence with the help of horses each year. Because the gait of a horse so closely mimics that of a human being, improvements in strength, muscle memory, and physical ability are often realized. Moreover, the unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to elevated trust, patience, joy, and self-worth.

Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies are recognized by:

American Physical Therapy Association, American Occupational Therapy Association, Easter Seals, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Special Olympics, Spina Bifida Association, United Cerebral Palsy.

“I love the total commitment that the entire staff has to the riders, the horses, and the families involved.”
