Heritage Christian Stables

Heritage Christian Stables is a therapeutic riding program for children and adults, accredited by PATH Intl. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International). With the assistance of highly skilled riding instructors and hundreds of dedicated volunteers, this program provides an exciting opportunity for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual growth.

As Sir Winston Churchill once said: “There’s something about the outside of a horse that’s good for the inside of a man.” At Heritage Christian Stables, we believe the special bond between a rider and their horse can help all people reach beyond their limitations to achieve their dreams.

Therapeutic Horsemanship impacts a person’s physical, cognitive, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. The horse’s walk mimics the three-dimensional movement of the human walk, offering riders the rhythmic movement and opportunities for improvement in balance, symmetry, and muscle strengthening. Participants are provided with cognitive tasks to improve following directions, sequencing, and meeting educational goals. Psychologically, it’s empowering for the rider to be able to partner with a 1,000-pound animal and develop a bond with a horse that positively affects the participant’s self-esteem and confidence. Therapeutic horsemanship allows people to strengthen their bodies and minds, freeing their spirit to do the things they never thought possible. And best of all, it’s fun!
