Abstract

Sitting on 191 acres at the base of the Sawtooth Mountain Range, Swiftsure Ranch Therapeutic Equestrian Center is a nonprofit 501(c)3 with a special mission to encourage the physical, mental and emotional well-being of children and adults with disabilities through equine-assisted activities and therapies.

110 riders come to Swiftsure Ranch each week to participate in equine therapeutic riding and learn the skills to adapt to the world around them. This means that lessons are adapted to their unique physical, mental and/or emotional needs. Riding can build character, confidence and self-esteem in our riders, as well as give them opportunities to access the outdoors and recreation.
