SMILES therapeutic riding program is excited to offer a unique Field Trip or Recreational Ride for groups with special needs.

The planning of the day’s activities will be tailored per your requests. We can accommodate up to 18 students per visit, dividing them into three groups. While one group of students is learning to ride the horses for one half hour, the remaining two groups are participating in a specialized station consisting of farm and horse related activities such as climbing on hay bales, feeding and watering the horses, baking horse cookies, etc. The list goes on and on since our 35 acre facility provides many unique opportunities. At the end of each half hour, the groups rotate activity stations so that all the students enjoy the same rewarding experience. All of these activities address sensory levels, physical exercise, endurance, nurturing, and just plain fun! Our climate controlled arena allows us to offer this program in any weather. The fee for the therapeutic riding and two specialized stationed activities of your choice is $30.00 per participant.

We can also provide therapeutic riding to six individuals at a time with the remaining participants observing from our spacious lounge. The fee for the therapeutic riding experience without specialized stations is $20.00 per participant.

Please call or email classes@smilestherapeuticriding.org for further information and registration forms.

We would love to have you come and visit our facility at any time to experience the many ways that horses can touch the lives of people with special needs.
