More About this Event Poster: Project RIDE Inc.

Project R.I.D.E. offers therapeutic recreational horseback riding instruction to over 500 riders with disabilities. Our goal is to improve physical, emotional and social functioning through participation in a highly structured and safe program. Riders’ interaction with carefully selected and trained horses improves their balance, posture, flexibility, sensory awareness and endurance in addition to increasing confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, motivation, attention span and integration with non-disabled peers.

There is a magic that occurs between horse and rider, forming a very strong bond, especially when the rider is in any way limited. For people with impaired mobility, horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves their bodies in a manner similar to a human walking gait. Riders with learning or mental disabilities are motivated by the interaction with their horses to concentrate more and develop patience and discipline. People with psychological, physical or emotional challenges have the special opportunity to form unconditional, meaningful relationships with the volunteers, their peers and the horses.

In addition to riding, we offer unmounted programs including our Horse Club and Equicizer. Please contact us to inquire about any of our equine-assisted programs at (916) 685-7433.

This non-mounted program held on Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30pm is available to anyone with special needs, but priority is given to participants who may not be able to participate in our mounted program for health or weight reasons. We will be doing arts and crafts, grooming and bathing horses, and working on social skills with a team of specially trained volunteers assisting. This program is ongoing and fees are $100 monthly.
