Equestrian Riding Program

The Equestrian Riding Program is designed to provide children the opportunity to grow and develop through various activities with horses. Activities include basic horse care, grooming, recreational and competitive riding. Our children are able to interact with the horses which exercises both “mind and muscle”. Research shows that children who participate in riding can experience physical, emotional and mental rewards. This improves balance, creates trust and develops a friendship between rider and horse. An abused child can bond with a horse when they are unable to bond with another person due to the negative experiences they had prior to coming to Peppers Ranch.
