Colorado Springs Therapeutic Riding Center


What

Through the therapy programs on our horses we make a heartfelt and profound difference in the lives of people with disabilities in the Pikes Peak Region. No matter the challenge of our riders; physical, emotional and/or mental this experience offers them new opportunities in life. This is the Ultimate Horse Power!

Why

Our mission is the foundation of our dedication to our riders, volunteers, staff and horses. Our equine assisted therapy allows our riders to break free from their crutches, wheelchairs and disabilities and experience the freedom and joy that being on their therapy horse gives to them. They are enriched, encouraged, and gain cognitive and physical stability and growth and a very strong sense of “I did it!”

Needs

Volunteers ages 14+; Office supplies-printer paper, envelopes, etc.; Manure and leaf rakes; Horse brushes; Curry combs; Horse tack.

Did You Know
