The facility space includes a beautiful and large green field, parking, locker rooms, indoor arena, access ramp for wheelchair users and a riding school in an area separated from Therapeutic Riding.


Currently there are approximately 80 clients in the program, with ages varying from 2 to 60 years old. The clinic operates Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.The optimum requirements for the horses would be gentle temperament, gelding, appropriate size horse and others. Currently the clinic is using five horses for the Therapeutic Riding practice. The teaching materials and riding programs are always individualized for the client’s goals.
