The research to develop Red River Riders began as early as 1983 when Chris Baldwin, a 4-H Horseless Horse leader, began reading articles about therapeutic horseback riding. After 2 years of research and training, Red River Riders was born as a 4-H club with the help of a grant from the Scholl Foundation. The grant purchased safety equipment and insurance coverage for the first year. 

Red River Riders helps people with disabilities regardless of age. We began giving lessons in 1985 with 3 riders and 1 horse. We currently serve 60+ riders.  We have served riders with hearing impairment, autism, cerebral palsy, and cognitive disabilities, as well as many other disabilities.
