Our Program

WRI offers horseback riding for children with disabilities.

Horseback riding is one of the few recreational activities that is truly physically therapeutic. It requires the involvement of the whole body and utilizes every muscle and joint — providing a combination of sensory, cognitive, and emotional stimulation that facilitates mobility, socialization, and independence.

In our one-hour riding program, children play fun games on horseback that improve their coordination and balance. Fall, winter, and spring sessions are held on Monday and Thursday afternoons from 4 to 5 pm. A shorter summer session is held in the evenings during the month of July. See the session schedule for session dates.

The Benefits of Riding

If you would like to sign up your child as a rider or volunteer, please visit our contact page.

It is as important to exercise the spirit as it is the body, and horseback riding contributes much to both the emotional well-being and physical progress of the rider.
