Dream Riders – Therapeutic Horseback Riding
Dream Riders is a non-profit 501-C-3 corporation providing a unique approach to physical, emotional, and recreational therapeutic fun for both children and adults with special needs, presently serving people with mental and/or physical disabilities. Each rider is reviewed before acceptance into Dream Riders equestrian program for medical releases and our program’s ability to provide a safe equestrian experience for the rider. A monthly review is held by our certified instructors on each rider as to their progress and if any changes are needed to their present goals.
Our certified instructors, with the help of many dedicated volunteers and specially trained horses, enable riders of all ages to benefit from alternative therapeutic techniques away from the normal “clinical” setting. Riders not only enjoy our home facility, but also have the opportunities to participate in other equestrian and non-equestrian events throughout the year, including shows, demonstrations, and fun social events. Dream Riders operates year-round, offering weekly small group lessons in Lexington, SC. A few of our advanced special riders have semi-private lessons.
