Adaptive Riding

Through our Adaptive Riding program students with physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges improve independence and functional life skills all while learning to ride. The rhythmic, three-dimensional and symmetrical movement of the horse provides physical benefits, and the connection and communication with both the horse and the community of the ranch foster social skills, emotional management, self-awareness, sensory integration, language skills and more. It is a fun, safe, and social environment, centered around interaction with the horse.

Equine-Assisted Learning

Our Equine-Assisted Learning program is an experiential learning program that promotes the development of life skills for educational, professional and personal growth through equine-assisted activities. With a focus on at-risk individuals (including individuals managing trauma, dealing with mental health challenges, or navigating significant life changes), EAL creates an environment for creating new toolsets for individuals to overcome challenges in the day-to-day.
