Friends for Tomorrow began in 1994 with one horse and the inspiration to provide physically and emotionally challenged  young people with the therapeutic benefits of horseback riding. As a small, volunteer-based organization, we offer an individualized program for each rider. Providing one-on-one lessons, we are able to tailor every lesson to each rider’s evolving needs and personality. We work closely with parents to design lesson programs for their children that advance both short and long-term goals for personal and physical growth For individuals with physical disabilities, riding a horse simulates the walking motion of a person, which aids in improving muscle strength, posture, flexibility, balance and coordination. The motion experienced while riding a horse provides the pelvis and hips with forward rotational movement in a synchronized alternating motion. Participants who are semi- or non ambulatory can gain benefits from this experience through passive contraction and extension which help tone and supple muscle groups.
