Ready Set Ride Therapeutic Recreation Facility offers a variety of weekly riding sessions to accommodate students and their busy schedules.
Ready Set Ride offers 8 week riding sessions which provide equine therapeutic activities to children challenged by a wide spectrum of disabilities. By evaluating each child's challenges, we can personalize the riding session to give him/her the most effective riding experience. Each Instructor and volunteer devotes their time to making every session a safe and fun experience giving the students memories for a lifetime.
Every session at Ready Set Ride has an PATH certified trained instructor, two side walkers and one lead person. By providing students with such extensive personal attention a greater length of therapeutic time can be spent with the horses. This hands on approach provides the students a higher degree of comfort, stability and control. Sessions focus on the student’s abilities to participate in a series of movements and tasks designed by the instructor to work harmoniously with rider and horse. Throughout the session instructors continually interact with each student to emphasis activities which stimulate areas of need. Instructors use various forms of communication i.e. visual, audible and kinesthetic throughout the sessions to make sure the student’s participation is meaningful and enjoyable. No matter what type of day from the beginning of the session to the end you’ll always see a smile on a student's face.
Cost of each 8 week session - $495.00
