We offer riding lessons for all ages and all deciplines. From beginners to advanced riders, we’ve got it all. First-timers will learn safety, grooming, and how to properly saddle a horse. More advanced riders can receive show training from our experienced trainers. Many types of classes are now available:
Our programs provide positive change for very special lives. Horseback riding is a proven healing technique for children with a variety of special needs both physical and emotional.
How does riding help clients with special needs?
The horse allows a person to be in charge while riding. They are, “in control” instead of being told what to do by teachers, parents, family members and peers.
The feeling of empowerment has positive effects on physical and mental health. Students can talk with confidence about something they love. Balance, flexibility, coordination, sensory integration, attention span and verbalization are improved.
Our programs have been designed to be healing, educational and fun. At Healing Pastures our participants find “Success in the Saddle and in Life.”
Healing Pastures is associated with PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) (formerly known as NARHA): The North American Riding for the Handicapped Association.
If you’re looking for a unique adventure, look no further. Have an educational and recreational experience on one of our outings! All ages are welcome to join in on the fun! Those joining us on outings can look forward to interacting with animals and experiencing life on a ranch.
