Heavenly Hooves Therapeutic & Recreational Riding Center

Non Profit Therapeutic Riding Center
Heavenly Hooves Mission is to help enhance the quality of life of individuals with cognitive, emotional, behavioral and/or physical challenges by providing interactive experiences with horses in a safe environment, which builds confidence, improves social skills and coping skills, promotes emotional healing, and help clients make positive changes in their lives. Heavenly Hooves works with new methodologies showing the brain’s ability to generate new neural pathways which connects different areas of the brain. This allows for opportunities to work on underdeveloped portions of the brain to allow or accelerate healing.
Can you imaging being able to assist in making a difference for a child/adult who is currently challenged with communication struggles (non-verbal), has seizures, Cerebral Palsy, rare Genetic disorders, Down Syndrome, autism, traumatic brain injury (beaten baby syndrome) to name a few challenges these students deal with. Well, consider the blessing you can make in their lives, and the blessing you receive for doing so! You think you are going to just help someone else, but these students and families change you – for the better!
AND these students get to do this all while riding a horse – How cool is that!
Heavenly Hooves also provides opportunities for at-risk youth and our Veteran’s Program will be opening soon!
