Horsemanship Adapted to the Individual
What is Adaptive Riding?
Rainy Day Ranch offers therapeutic (or adaptive) riding lessons for individuals with special needs. Adaptive riding is recreational horseback riding lessons catered to each individual and their learning needs.
Our adaptive riding lessons are taught by a PATH Intl Certified Instructor. The instructor incorporates various exercises and activities to build each riders confidence in themselves and around horses. Lessons include horsemanship skills such as grooming, tacking, groundwork, and mounted skills. Each lesson is planned around the various physical, emotional, and mental needs of each rider.
