We are a nonprofit Horseplay Therapeutic Riding Center.   Our center is affiliated with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, (PATH International).   Our center offers a year-round therapeutic recreational horseback-riding program for special needs children and adults.  Riding develops strength and balance, and increases self-esteem, benefiting individuals with conditions such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, down syndrome, autism, brain injury or head trauma, visual and hearing impairments, mental or learning disorders, and muscular dystrophy.
