Adaptive Riding & Horsemanship Lessons

Our adaptive riding program has helped hundreds of children and adults reach their individual goals and we are looking forward to helping hundreds more.

Our adaptive riding and unmounted horsemanship lessons are tailored to provide optimum experiences for each student. All of our instructors are PATH certified and use a variety of methods to enhance participants' horsemanship skills as well as physical and cognitive abilities.

 

Our instructors will work with you to develop an individualized plan in accordance with your goals.

Each lesson is assisted by a trained volunteer team, which lead the horse and walk alongside the rider to help stabilize and support as needed. 

Many who ride in our programs have medically diagnosed
conditions such as:

  • ADD and ADHD                 

  • Autism Spectrum               

  • Cerebral Palsy                     

  • Developmental Delay        

  • Down Syndrome                 

  • Epilepsy                               

  • Freidreichs Ataxia

Riding has benefited Claire in so many ways- physically, socially, but mostly in how she sees herself. It has been so gratifying to watch Claire's love affair with her horses at EquiCenter, which has enriched her life in so many unexpected ways.
