Dreaming of riding horses and learning how to care for them? At Healing Horse Stables you will learn riding skills through an hour-long lesson including various exercises and activities from a P.A.T.H. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) certified instructor. You will also have a ground lesson where you will learn how to groom and saddle a horse.

NOTE: Closed-toed gym shoes are required and no high heels. Due to safety concerns, you will not be able to participate in improper footwear. Cowboy boots are welcome! Long pants are highly recommended to protect your legs from the saddle and horse. Bring a water bottle each week! **There is a weight limit of 250 lbs.

GOALS: Increase in concentration and balance, improved coordination, gross motor skills, improve overall orientation and body awareness, muscle tone, posture, flexibility, increase of knowledge about horses and riding, improved emotion well-being, and forming a connection with a non-judgmental being.
