Since 1988, Hugs for Horses Therapeutic Riding has been harnessing the healing power of horses to change the lives of children and adults with disabilities in our community. 

Our horses help children and adults in our community with a variety of diagnoses: Autism Spectrum Disorder, intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, sight and hearing impairments, and spina bifida, to name a few.
