Our wish is that you could see the smile of a child lifted from its' wheelchair and placed high on the back of a willing and gentle horse, or the child who seldom speaks utter a single word to speak to its' horse, or perhaps a teen with anxiety disorder overcome his fear and face the challenge before them. The objective of Haven Hills Therapeutic Riding Center is to provide the following services:
1. Free therapy to the special needs community: Through sensory integration and motor skill motivation on horseback, we will be able to help these individuals to enhance their dynamic posture, muscle tone, socialization, mobility, cognitive abilities, and an overall improved quality of life.
2. Free therapy to our Veteran's/Wounded Warrior's servicemen and women.
3. Low cost Mental Health and Learning Services.
Here's what one volunteer, Tiffany Roberts-Wilson, has to say about our program:
"Haven Hills Therapeutic Riding Center is a special place. They will tell you that their mission is to "provide equine assisted learning and rehabilitative therapies to enhance dynamic posture, muscle tone, socialization, mobility, cognitive abilities, and overall quality of life for special needs children, teenagers, and adults at no cost to them or their families." But, what they really provide is intangible, amazing, and magical. To see a child who cannot walk, dress themself, feed themself, or even hold their body upright in their wheelchair be lifted onto a gentle horse and then sit up tall and direct an animal ten-times their size, smiling all the while rewards you with a feeling that is beyond description with mere words."
