Blue Sky Therapeutic Riding and Respite was founded in 2010 by a group of people devoted to developing a comprehensive program to help those living with disabilities. This includes individuals with autism, physical, cognitive or emotional disabilities, and also their siblings, parents, and caretakers. Blue Sky’s therapeutic riding center has helped many special needs individuals gain confidence and improve motor skills, cognitive ability and gain valuable life skills. We are creating an environment to teach life skills, offer the ability to participate in events such as Special Olympics, offer referrals to community resources and assist and offer support and respite to all members of a family with special needs children.

Blue Sky is dedicated to setting a new standard in service for our special needs community.
