Therapeutic Riding - Morning Star Program

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 exists 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

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

Therapeutic Riding lessons 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.

Still Waters Equestrian Academy is a non-profit organization which strives to offer needs-based scholarships for all of our programs including the Morning Star Program.  This enables us to utilize the most safe and effective tack and adaptive equipment and maintain well-trained, healthy horses for all of our clients.

Donors make it possible for us to meet these goals.  Please consider making a donation to Still Waters Equestrian Academy so that our Morning Star Therapeutic Riding Program  can continue to provide access to the highest-quality equine therapy services at the lowest possible cost to participants.
