Paradise Ranch is located approximately 30 miles north of Nashville Tennessee, in a town called Springfield.
We started our riding program in 1999, with only 8 clients and 4 horses. The program has expanded to including therapeutic horseback riding and hippotherapy for both adult and children. With a certified CHA riding instructor and physical therapist on staff.
Summer sessions on horseback riding lessons are available for beginner and all levels of experience riders. An indoor and outdoor arena is available for riding, as well as a wide varity of horse trails.
Our program for individuals with disabilities is set up so that a mount walker and up to two siders are assigned to each client. A session is an hour long and focuses on physically and mentally strengthing the client while teaching them how to ride a horse. For cases when a client is unable to ride a horse, a horse drawn buggy is used.
