At PARDS, Therapeutic Riders experience improved balance, muscle strength and coordination. Developing their horsemanship skills increases riders' and groomers' self-esteem and confidence and creates an atmosphere of awareness, respect, trust and friendship between themselves, their horse, and the instructors and volunteers who work with them.

PARDS runs Three, 10-week Therapeutic Sessions (Fall, Winter & Spring) that mirror the traditional school year.  Please refer to our Calendar or contact our office for exact start and end dates.
