Our Mission 

 

At Golden Saddles, we commit ourselves by providing our professional assistance and developing long-term relationships with our clients. Our certified professionals are patient and eager to help students succeed at their own levels of learning. Whether in group or private lessons, our clients will receive individual attention to ensure safety, comfort, and progress. 

 

Golden Saddles invites people with mental, physical and psychological disabilities to share our facility and engage in safe equine assisted activities that aid in the development and improvement of physical, cognitive and emotional well-being. We are compassionate about the hardships and perseverance that entails having a family member with disability.  Our aim is to cultivate optimism and independence through mounted and non-mounted equine activities.

 

Feel free to contact us anytime to schedule a visit!

Therapeutic Riding

 

Horseback riding is not simply a recreational activity. It is also an effective form of therapy for individuals with almost any physical, cognitive and/or emotional disability. The equines’ rhythmic movement, along with added balance queues provided by games and the development of riding skills stimulates vestibular, neurological and circulatory processes while improving range of motion, core strength, balance and sensory integration. Through horsemanship, our participants develop confidence, emotion regulation, social skills and a strong foundation for life’s endeavors.
