According to PATH Intl., "Experiencing the motion of a horse can be very therapeutic. Because horseback riding rhythmically moves the rider’s body in a manner similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength. In addition to the therapeutic benefits, horseback riding also provides recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities to enjoy the outdoors. Therapeutic/adaptive horsemanship contributes to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of individuals with disabilities."
Benefits include: flexibility, balance, muscle strength, improved coordination, recreational opportunities, self-esteem, and confidence
Therapeutic/Adaptive riding is a service we offer to anyone with a documented disability/diagnosis with prior clearance from a doctor and a PATH Certified Riding Instructor.

A unique offering at Morning Star Adaptive Riding Center is our ability to host your business or company for a team building experience. We believe that stepping outside of your comfort zone, learning something new and grounding yourself in the presence of our beautiful horses is just what your team needs to make it the best it can be!We will work with you to set your goals for the day as well as a schedule that meets for your needs. During your time at Morning Star, there will be the opportunity for your team to tour our facilities and work with our horses on a variety of activities including ones designed to challenge your team to use communication and listening skills. At the end of your day, we have the option for your team to debrief with our on-site mental health therapist about what you worked on that day, what you learned, and how you can take those lessons into the work place.
