About The Program

HEARTS Therapeutic Riding Center was established in 2011 and is a 501(c)(3) charitable non profit

including a 9 stall barn, two lesson rings, a round pen for ground lessons, a tactile sensory trail, and over
200 acres of county park behind the farm for trail lessons.
A great place to learn and experience nature.

ABOUT THE RIDERS

Riders begin their journey at HEARTS TRC with an initial evaluation to determine their abilities, strengths, and modality of learning (auditory, visual, hands on). Then, a specific horse is assigned according to size and motion that best suit the needs of the rider, as well as the number of volunteers that are needed to assist the rider. A day and time is given and the student is paired with an instructor

 

The HEARTS TRC instructors set individual goals which are met in weekly lessons to improve posture, balance, focus, concentration, and life skills. Outcomes have shown that through the teaching of horsemanship skills astride, in the barn, and in ground lessons, the individual’s quality of life improves at home, in school, and the work place.

In addition to weekly private and group lessons, HEARTS TRC has a curriculum for school, community, and at-risk groups, as well as working with our Wounded Warriors.These curriculum meet educational standards and provide a unique way to learn educational skills outside the classroom.
