We are a non-profit organization based in New York City that offers therapeutic horsemanship programs to children and adults with disabilities. We serve 150 riders a week and operate our riding program at three main locations, though our schedule at each varies with the season:
Therapeutic horsemanship uses the pleasures and skills of horseback riding and horse knowledge to build developmental, emotional, social, and physical skills for each individual rider.
Under the direction of a PATH International certified instructor, supported by trained volunteers, each rider progressively acquires riding skills and measurable improvements in life skills. Through weekly sessions, we help riders walk, talk, connect, focus, behave, learn, and have FUN! We also offer hippotherapy services.
Therapeutic horsemanship means learning to ride a horse. But it means much more – it means building a bond with a horse, learning to care for a horse, understanding how horses perceive the world and respond to people, and being a leader to a horse.
