True Strides Therapy Horses

True Strides is a Horsemanship Program providing opportunities for individuals of all abilities to experience exceptional equine-assisted activities and therapeutic riding lessons. Through intentionally designed programming, participants gain knowledge and skills in horse history, grooming, breeds, riding styles and more.

“Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful program and your time in training us volunteers. It’s such a reward being able to help others when I can and it’s even more of a treat being around one of my favorite animals. Very nice and friendly team you have working for you.” Louie, Volunteer

“You are all doing amazing work there! It’s so nice to see a great program come to fruition! Congratulations”.-Alison, Volunteer

“I loved when a camper was super excited to be on the horse and kept saying “I am on a horse” She had the biggest smile on her face and it made it one of my favorite days on the farm just because she was so happy to be up on that horse. “- Jaclyn, Volunteer
