In-Stride with Therapeutic Riding, Inc. has been providing recreational horseback riding with therapeutic benefits to children and adults with disabilities since September of 2006. Our organization is run by volunteers and funded primarily by donations, fundraisers and grants.
We currently provide lessons for 35 students and are continuing to expand. Our current students range from age 4 though 27. Currently we are accepting new students. We also offer ground sessions. Ground sessions are for individuals who are unable to ride but would like to experience the healing power of the horse.
We are happy to announce that we are now part of Horses4Hereos. Horses4Hereos pairs servicemen/woman and their families with barns all over the United States. We will now provide equine related activities to these individuals and their families.
For more information on lessons, please visit the "Lesson" page.
Volunteers are invaluable part of our organization. Volunteers give a few hours a week to change a child for a lifetime. Our volunteers consist of individuals who are kind and caring. While horse experience can be helpful, it is not necessary. All volunteers are instucted on proper handling of horses, sidewalking duties, and leader duties. Most of all our volunteers are instructed to have fun! For more information on volunteering, vist the "Volunteer" page.
