Home » Our Riders

Our students, ages 2 to 80 represent all areas of Frederick County. Any individual who has a disability which makes learning difficult is welcome in our program – Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Autism, Visual and Hearing Impairments, Attention Deficit Disorder, etc. Our students may have more than one disability. In order for a student to ride, he/she is required to show physician’s approval. Students are placed in small riding groups based on abilities. A registered Therapist and Riding Instructor develop a lesson plan that includes goals set by academic teachers, other therapists, work supervisors and physicians.
