  • About

    Our mission at Spirit Ride is to provide children with a wide array of diagnoses the opportunity to learn, grow, and strive to become their ideal selves through equine related therapeutic and educational activities. Spirit Ride is committed to providing private therapeutic riding sessions FREE of charge to all accepted clients. Through working with the client's therapy Team (Educators, Community Professionals, and Parents/Guardians) we are able to create the ideal environment relating to the individual client's specific needs. We give our undivided attention to the rider and his/her equine partner for the entire duration of each session so that we may provide an opportunity to foster learning and personal growth (self-esteem, boundary setting, appropriate social interaction, as well as any cognitive or physical goals).

    Client and Volunteer applications may be found online.
