Ride Above

Therapeutic Riding

Therapeutic riding is used to achieve goals that enhance physical, emotional, social, cognitive, behavioral and educational skills for people with special needs. We not only focus on riding skills but also the development of a relationship between horse and rider.

Team Approach

We use a team approach to create a fun, safe, individual riding experience that provides an environment that fosters growth in strength, coordination, balance, speech, body awareness, education, independence, and confidence. Everyone at Ride Above is committed to changing lives for the better, no matter who you are.

Tailored Lessons

All lessons are conducted by experienced instructors who will build lessons based on the riders goals and individual needs. We want all of our riders to have a unique, amazing experience when they come to Ride Above Disability Therapeutic Riding Center.

May 6th Barn Dance Fundraiser

We are very excited to announce a boot-scootin' fun time! Come join us for our 5th Annual Barn Dance Fundraiser on Saturday May 6, 2023. Presented by the Donegan Burns Foundation!

This event brings awareness to our community about our program and all the proceeds benefit the students and horses. In the past, our Barn Dance fundraisers have helped the program raise over $25,000. Which is huge for us as this is our biggest event of the year.

The event will include music, dancing, dinner, silent auctions, raffles, parent speeches, great wine and beer and more fun to be had by all! Each ticket includes dinner, dancing and one drink. We now have table options available and unlimited drink stamps.

This is an event you don't want to miss, we look forward to seeing you all there! (this event is 21 and up, dress is casual/western wear). Tickets are now on sale!

This will close in 20 seconds
