River Valley Riders is registered in Minnesota as a nonprofit organization. We are a tax exempt, volunteer-run therapy program created to provide recreational horse riding experiences for children and adults with disabilities and/or neurological impairments. Our program welcomes riders from the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area and Western Wisconsin. Lessons are conducted in accordance with the safety, training and instructional guidelines of the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA). All riders are to provide written permission from their physician[s] and each new student undergoes a personal evaluation to assess their individual riding abilities.
Our mission is to provide therapeutic horseback riding to children and adults with physical, sensory, and/or neurological disabilities in order to improve physical and cognitive skills and develop emotionally through close contact with an animal.
