Wildhorse! is a riding program with experience teaching people who have all forms of disabilities. We are getting back in the saddle in Montana after several successful years in California! Best riding days so far are Thursdays after school, and Saturday afternoons.
Our volunteers, including parents, learn to lead, tie, groom, tack up our horse and give her a preliminary ride or hand walk in the arena, outdoors or indoors. The volunteers also learn to follow individual lesson plans to help the students physically and emotionally. Volunteers, if they wish, receive lessons for whatever they can pay. We have never turned anyone away for lack of funds.
Wildhorse! is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horseman International certified program under the direction of registered riding instructor, Kari Ann, who has taught riding since 2001. We have taught children and adults with autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, anorexia/bulimia, depression and anxiety. Wildhorse! is open to all physically and emotionally challenged adults. Our oldest student in California was 80 years old and had Parkinson’s. We have also taught a therapist who was phobic about horses; she overcame her phobia with Wildhorse!
