Stable Hand's mission is to teach adaptive horseback riding to empower individuals in our community to overcome physical, mental and emotional challenges.
Our carefully selected horses and specially trained volunteers assist our certified therapeutic riding instructors in providing a challenging activity in a safe environment. Our lessons are held in an outdoor facility on private property. Horsemanship activities in the great outdoors provides individuals with disabilities, access to Nature and all the benefits of fresh air, sunshine and breezes.
Therapeutic horsemanship activities include grooming, saddling, leading and warm up activities on the ground as well as mounted riding lessons in small groups. The benefits of therapeutic horsemanship are improvements in strength, balance, confidence, communication and social skills.
Horses Helping Heroes
|At Stable Hands, we help military Veterans who have sustained a physical or mental injury, illness or wound to recover strength and confidence while developing horsemanship skills. This program is built on the foundation of Veteran peer support and utilizes the camaraderie between Servicemen and women to provide a healing environment. Trained Veteran volunteers assist with each session.|
