Colorado Springs Therapeutic Riding Center

We provide equine assisted therapy to children and adults with disabilities.  Together with our professional certified instructors and specially trained horses, our students are able to gain a better sense of their own individual abilities and strengths. This ultimate horse power aids in the therapy to our students who are living with physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioral and learning challenges related to various forms of trauma, developmental delays, autism, cerebral palsy, blindness, deafness, down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, batons disease, and cancer.  Through our program we continue to see positive results in the vocabulary, core strength, flexibility, balance and personalities of our riders.  Our goal is to help our riders lead more fulfilling lives.

Our volunteers are the backbone of CSTRC and our classes are on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. Volunteers are provided hands on training for our volunteers as sidewalkers and leaders and an orientation.  They interact with students of all ages and disabilities.
