Our students, ages 2 to 80 represent all areas of Frederick County. Any individual who has a disability which makes learning difficult – 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, they must complete the following FORMS.
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. Students are eligible to ride for 7 weeks in the spring and fall,
with summer classes available. There is always a waiting list of 40 hopeful riders. Riders join us once a week for a 45 minute ride during these sessions. Spring, summer and fall sessions are $245 each. Private therapeutic lessons are also available.
Riders may also participate in two in-house horse shows and attend the Great Frederick Fair Horse Show help in September.
