Hearts Therapeutic Riding is Now Accepting Students!
These new times are tough on everyone, especially the kids. They are used to a schedule and that has changed drastically. Riding a horse in the great outdoors is an amazing and safe way to social distance.
Did you know that riding produces oxytocins in the body which is why people feel better after riding? We specialize in providing therapeutic riding services to all populations, but not limited to those who deal with:
*Physical and developmental disabilities
*Mental health issues
*Individuals who need confidence building and physical development.
There are physical, cognitive, and emotional benefits with horseback riding. Many riders in our program report feeling physically stronger and more flexible. They also feel increased self-esteem, decreased anxiety, improvements in problem solving, attention, memory, and more!

Only some of the benefits are promoting strength, increasing flexibility, boosting self-esteem and confidence, helping focus and promoting peacefulness.
Call all Military Veterans: Come ride with us and experience the healing power of horses!
Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) has proven beneficial for Veterans and family members who have experienced trauma, such as Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and other physical, mental, and emotional challenges.
Just being around a therapy horse, whether one chooses, to ride, groom, or spend time walking on the trail can bring a sense of peace and well-being. The rhythm of the horse while riding, hearing the beat of their hooves as they touch the ground, or just standing listening to them breathe is an experience like no other.
Physical, cognitive, and emotional benefits also come with horseback riding. Oxytocin is produced in the human body which is why people feel better after riding. Many riders in our program report feeling physically stronger and more flexible. They also experience increased self-esteem, decreased anxiety, improvements in problem solving, attention, memory, and more!
