Assisted Horseback Riding Lessons are available for individuals with special needs. It’s a wonderful opportunity for exceptional people who are looking for an outdoor experience. Lessons are taught by our trained Instructors and assisted by our hard working crew of volunteers who generously donate their time and energy.
The 2016 Assisted Riding Season is divided into three Sessions. Lessons are every other week :
Session I: March 19-May 20 Session II: June 25-Aug 26 Session III: Oct 1– Nov 12.
To receive optimal therapeutic value in horseback riding, riders should ride for an entire season if possible. Session I & II will include (5) lessons each with scholarship funding available. Session III is a (4) lesson extension with no scholarship funding available.
Scholarship funding is available for Sessions I & II. If you require financial assistance, please complete the Scholarship Application Form and submit it at time of registration. As SHAR scholarship funding is limited, we suggest you reach out where ever possible, there are several local organizations that can help with aid. A list of funding options is available upon request.
