PoVa Therapeutic Riding Center
Poway Valley Therapeutic Riding Center (PoVa) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering therapeutic horseback riding to children and adults with special needs. The lessons are led by the program’s Executive Director, Ingrid Mourey who is a PATH International Advanced Instructor. She is working with a dedicated team of instructors whose expertise includes therapeutic riding instructor certifications, extensive equestrian backgrounds, and teaching experience in the special needs classroom.
PoVa is located on the pristine grounds of Creek Road Ranch, which is conveniently situated in a picturesque valley at the very south-west end of Poway. Working with some very special horses and a dedicated group of volunteers, we are able to offer private and semi-private lessons to children and adults with disabilities. Our lessons are taught both in the riding arena as well as along the trails that meander throughout the property. Our sensory trail combines the sights and sounds of nature with many exciting interactive activities for our students.
