Rocky Mountain Riding Therapy provides equine-based therapy programs for individuals with physical, learning and emotional disabilities. Our goal is to help each rider reach their potential as both a horseperson and as a human being. Riding not only improves muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination and motor development, but also the rider's confidence and emotional well being. The riders have the opportunity not only to participate but to lead.

Rocky Mountain provides riding services each year to 150 riders ranging in age from 3 years old through teenagers and seniors. Our riders have a variety of disabilites including Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism, visual and hearing impairments and Downs Syndrome.

Therapeutic riding classes are held every Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the winter with additional classes in the summer when the weather and daylight are better. Friday and Saturday classes are not held during the month of December to allow the horses a break and Thursday classes are held all year round, weather permitting.
