Rising Star Riders, RSR, provides therapeutic horseback riding, unmounted instruction and mental health services. We offer services to children and adults with physical and/or emotional challenges. During mounted instruction the participant learns how to properly mount the horse, control the horse, and develops a basic balanced position while riding. During the lesson the participants will develop riding skills while increasing muscle tone and increasing a sense of mastery. During unmounted instruction participants will learn how to halter, lead, groom and tack up the horse. The participant will learn new communication skills, will improve socialization and increase balance and stamina. While participating they will gain a sense of control and confidence.
