Mission of T.E.A.M.
(Therapeutic Equine Assistance Method)

Our Mission is to enhance the quality of life for individuals with disabilities by serving them through a therapeutic horseback riding program in a caring, Christian atmosphere.

Our Services

Participants in our recreational therapeutic riding program (Adults and Youth beginning at at 13) learn horsemanship skills in a rider-focused setting with PATH International certified instructors, side walkers and horse leaders. Lessons are designed to meet the rider’s goals in a fun, inclusive setting. Beginners* as well as experienced riders are welcome.

*All interested beginners will undergo an extensive screening and risk-analysis to determine if a therapeutic riding program is a safe and suitable option.
