(Stirrups'n Strides)


COVID-19 protocols MUST be followed including wearing a mask and on-site temperature checks.


What makes therapeutic riding so special?

The bonding between horse and rider and the relationships with instructors and volunteers has now been proven to be beneficial to many with a variety of challenges. For the physically handicapped rider, horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves horses’ bodies, naturally mimicking human gait. Studies have shown that therapeutic riding provides the following benefits:

  • Psychological bonding and relationship building
  • Lifting of the spirit, improved self esteem and self confidence!
  • Increased attention span and social interaction
  • Improved balance, posture and flexibility 

Stirrups ‘n Strides will provide helmets.
Participants must be able to sit up on their own.
Clothing Requirements: Please wear long pants and closed toed shoes (preferably with a heel.)

Stirrups ‘n Strides is a member of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horses (PATH) and follows all PATH safety guidelines.
