Have you ever dreamed of riding horses beyond a mere pony ride? If you answered yes, then this program is for you! 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 or boots are required and no high heels. Due to safety concerns you will not be able to participate in improper footwear. Long pants are highly recommended to avoid rubbing on the legs from the saddle and horse. **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 emotional well-being and forming a connection with a non-judgmental being.
