Showing the bond between horse and rider in a therapeutic setting
  • Our vision is to increase the quality of  life for people with disabilities through the use of horses.

  • We believe that horses provide recreational and therapeutic benefits to persons with disabilities.

  • We believe that what happens between a horse and its rider is often a magical, and sometimes unexplainable, experience.

  • We believe that our training, knowledge and experience with horses and persons with disabilities provides a unique opportunity to enhance the quality of life for our clients.

  • We believe the world looks different on a horse.
