Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

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.

Horse-related programs:
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.

Non-horse-related programs:
We only offer horse related services. Various projects come up for future development of the facility but no revenue is received from the services.

Volunteer Opportunities

Wish List Items

English Saddles
We are in need of good quality English saddles.

Our horses consume a great deal of hay. Any donation of quality hay in small square bales would be a huge asset to our program.

Shale and Limestone are needed for our driveway. We appreciate any assistance we can receive.
