THERAPEUTIC RIDING & HORSEMANSHIP
Therapeutic riding and horsemanship lessons are available for children and adults with one or more of the following characteristics: autism spectrum disorder; emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues; experience with violence, abuse or trauma; or at-risk. The horse’s movement stimulates brain function, often leading to significant gains in language, neurological organization and self-confidence.
All Horse SenseAbility instructors are either certified by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH) or are supervised by someone who is.
If you are interested in therapeutic riding or horsemanship lessons, please complete and submit the Horse SenseAbility Participant Packet.

Horse SenseAbility offers a limited number of scholarships. To apply, submit our application. Children in foster care may also apply for financial assistance for therapeutic riding and horsemanship lessons from the Rise Above Foundation and the Massachusetts Wonderfund.
Note: Traditional riding lessons are available on a limited basis, primarily for family members of current participants. For more information about schedules and fees, please contact us.
