Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
It is the mission of Heavenly Gaits Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. to provide meaningful instructions in horsemanship that accommodate and enhance the quality of life of those challenged by physical, cognitive, emotional, and or social constraints.
We provide therapeutic riding for people with disabilities. Some summer camps are open to the general public to educate children and adults on equine care, barn management, and various horsemanship skills. We have a Special Olympics training program that teaches the skills necessary to compete in equestrian at the state level.
We only offer horse related services. Various projects come up for future development of the facility but no revenue is received from the services.
