The Students are why we do it - The Horses are how we do it!
Meet Our 1000 Pound Therapists
Each of Rainbow Riders’s therapy horses are selected, trained, and cared for according to criteria developed in combination with industry standards and requirements specific to our program, activities, and clientele. Hailing from all backgrounds, our horses are versatile and varied, allowing Rainbow Riders to accommodate our variety of participants. They are encouraged to express themselves honestly and appropriately, engaging their clients and offering an experience that transcends “horse and rider” to equal partners. They truly are the therapists in the riding sessions.

Horses We've Loved
“Somewhere…somewhere in time’s own space, there must be some sweet pastured place.Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow, some Paradise where horses go.For by the love that guides my pen, I know great horses live again.”~Stanley Harrison
