Our #1 priority is the safety of everyone and every horse that walks through our "doors". Horses are large domesticated wild animals with instincts. While our horses are specifically selected, trained, and exercised for the role they fill, no horse is 100% "bombproof". Our safety procedures, as well as our compliance with PATH International's protocols, are implemented to create a safe and stress-free environment for our horses which provides a safe and fun environment for our guests. Our staff is well-trained to facilitate quality, safe interaction between horse and visitor.
We believe in adapting to the needs of individual riders and foster a loving and supportive barn community as well as positive relationships with the community at large. Founded on the desire for the differently-abled to be included in the "typical" community, we offer both able-bodied andtherapeutic riding. Many of our able-bodied riders assist those in our therapeutic program.
Our curriculum is based on the art of classical horsemanship - riding for the well-being of the horse. Students learn balanced horseback riding in conjunction with the biomechanics of the horse to improve the balance and carrying capacity of our equines. Students progress through goals based on the "Principles of Riding" and the USDF tests.

Everyone's journey, fears, and dreams are different. We foster a community of empathy that begins with our instructors. While we push for progress, we adapt to the needs of each particular child and strive to kindly guide each rider through their fears to discover the greatness within.
