Vision – Empower, Enrich, and Inspire

Mission – To provide therapeutic horseback riding and driving to anyone with physical, mental, and emotional challenges, and to improve the quality of life for these individuals with the opportunity for emotional, educational, and physical growth through horsemanship and competition.

Values – Overcoming challenges & building relationships in a safe environment & making it all fun!


Therapeutic Riding – We are a member of Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH) and all our instructors are PATH certified.  Our mission is to provide therapeutic horseback riding and carriage driving to anyone with physical, mental or emotional challenges.  At Stirrups ‘n Strides we help empower, enrich and inspire those individuals with disabilities and to help improve their lives.

Competition –  At Stirrups ‘n Strides one of our main focuses is to challenge our riders to achieve their goals by preparing and competing at horse shows.  What better way to challenge our riders than to work towards that Blue ribbon!  As our riders skills improve, many work towards competing at the Exceptional Challenge Cup Finals in Kansas City!  What an exciting trip for our riders.

Special Olympics – Stirrups ‘n Strides is a Certified Special Olympic training facility. The ultimate goal of Special Olympics is to help persons with intellectual disabilities participate as productive and respected members of society by offering them a fair opportunity to develop and demonstrate their skills and talents through sports training and competition.
