Therapeutic Riding - Morning Star Program

Therapeutic Riding and Equine Therapy

Our Mission

Our mission at Still Waters Equestrian Academy is to share God's gift of horses with anyone, no matter their age, income, or ability. Morning Star Riding Center uses Therapeutic Riding and Equine Therapy to serve children and adults with special physical, intellectual, or emotional needs who may not otherwise have the opportunity to work with horses.
 

Our Program

The Morning Star Riding Center Therapeutic Riding Program serves adults and children, age 4 and older, with a wide range of physical and cognitive abilities. 

Services consist of a variety of ground and mounted activities designed to meet the physical, emotional, social and recreational goals of each client.  Lessons are offered to individuals and small groups using horses that are carefully evaluated and specifically trained for compatibility with the needs of participants with special needs.
