Open Hearts Therapeutic Riding

Open Hearts s a nonprofit that strives to not only serve those with disabilities but to those that just need some extra love in their lives. We connect people and horses through equine-assisted activities. Our vision is to promote mental, physical, emotional, and social growth to everyone involved in the program. With a therapy horse’s non-judgmental approach, quiet trust, and nurturing nature, participants are highly motivated to try new things. With encouragement, they can learn, practice, and achieve goals, which lead to reaching their full potential. All Open Hearts horses have been specifically selected for their temperament and ability to provide a safe and trusting relationship. Ongoing training assures they remain trustworthy partners for participants in our program. As with our horses, our instructors and volunteers are also in continual training to improve the quality of their service to participants.
