Dream Riders at MCCD is a Not-for-Profit facility dedicated to advocate services to benefit the whole family in a friendly farm environment. Our Team provides therapy for children and adults to address physical, sensory, and social concerns, using a variety of treatments and therapeutic methods.  Some programs offered at the Center include Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy, Equine Assisted Therapy, Therapeutic Riding, and Riding Lessons. Our staff and volunteers are committed to give the support needed to maximize each individual’s results and help them achieve their goals. Licensed therapists administer and manage each therapy session, using a diverse range of therapeutic tools selected based on the needs of the individual. Equine Assisted Therapy and Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship are strategies used in our treatment plans.
