The Magic Horse Therapeutic Riding Center exists to make a life-enhancing difference for disabled people and their families through the magic and power of the horse. Our program empowers riders with a sense of independence and acceptance through the use of Equine Assisted Activities (EAA). We encourage our students to become as productive and accomplished as possible, personally, with their families and within society.

To accomplish the ambitious goals of our program, the staff at The Magic Horse Therapeutic Riding Center are highly trained and certified by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA).
