At the Equestrian Therapy Program 

Feeling cooped up? Need a fun and educational activity to re-wire your brain for the return to the workplace? Whatever valuable experience you’re searching for, we can help.

In an unprecedented and proactive approach to COVID 19 and its subsequent fallout, the Equestrian Therapy Program is offering lessons to the general population. From September 14th, 2020 to November 7th, 2020, we are providing a packaged riding lesson program, covering the basics of horsemanship from the ground to the saddle. 

What will you learn in your lessons? 

· Leading

· Grooming

· Communicating with the horse

· Joining-up with your equine partner

For those of you comfortable in the saddle:

· Basic riding skills

The cost is $480.00 for 8 one-on-one, hour-long lessons with a PATH Intl. certified instructor. ETP will supply all horse related materials, including the riding helmet (unless you prefer to use your own).

Got your boots on? Let’s go!

Here is what you’ll need to get started:


  • Boots or closed-toe shoes with a heel (no sandals)

  • Long pants

  • Helmet (we will provide one if you can’t)

  • Face mask

  • Signed release form (if you have ridden with us before, please notice the changes due to Covid-19 restrictions)

  • View our Zoom video for arrival protocol and safety guidelines once you sign up

That’s it! Now, here are some basic rules to keep us all safe and smiling:

  • Follow barn rules and new sanitation procedures.

  • Provide your own water.

  • Riders under 16 years must be supervised by a responsible adult.

  • You must be at least 9 years old and able to follow instructions.

  • All riders must be able to mount the horse on their own. *A good home test is to sit in a chair and rise to a standing position without taking your hands off your hips.

Not all of our classes at Equine University require riding. Profound breakthroughs occur even when you keep your feet on the ground!
