  • Horseback riding works the ambulatory, core and posture muscles, improves balance and fine motor function. The interaction with other riders and the volunteers promotes better socialization skills.

  • Conducted as single participant or double participant lessons.  A group participant lesson may take place at the discretion of the instructor.

  • Enrollment is available to new, novice, existing and advanced/independent participants who meet Ride to Fly’s medical and instructors’ approval.

  • This program brings the participant ground level with the horse.

  • The participant interacts with the horse by leading, grooming, tacking and untacking the horse. The participant also learns to care for and feed the horse.

  • This program enables the participant to use their power of observation of the horse to tap into their own physical, emotional, behavioral and non-verbal communication.
