Our mission is to enrich the lives of participants by enhancing balance, strength, and personal growth, while encouraging fun in learning new skills, through equine-assisted therapies and activities.  Our main focus is working with individuals who are physically, cognitively, emotionally or socially challenged, with the goal of strengthening body, mind, and spirit through interacting with horses.

About Us

Rise Up Therapeutic Horsemanship is a proud member center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, Int. (PATH, Int.), and our Instructors are PATH certified.  We are a 501(c)3 non profit Therapeutic Riding (TR) program in which individuals interact with horses both on the ground and in the saddle.

Working with horses provides a multitude of physical benefits including increased muscle tone, core strength, motor control, balance and flexibility. It also provides opportunities for problem solving and encourages communication skills through interactions with other riders, volunteers, instructors and the horse. Furthermore, therapeutic riding builds the self-esteem and confidence of the participants as they master  horsemanship skills and gain knowledge of how to work with equines. Interacting with horses also encourages trust-building, relational bonding, and emotional regulation.
