The Hope Center

 We give hope for the future through Equine experiences. As a non-profit organization, we are dedicated to providing therapeutic horseback riding and activities for individuals with and without disabilities.

Equine-Assisted Therapy helps with a variety of physical, behavioral and mental challenges as an alternative to the traditional clinical setting.  Because the gait of a horse is similar to the human stride, this particular therapy strengthens and supports the natural motion of the spine and pelvis.  Teams of instructors and volunteers work with the rider and horse to promote success, healing and a sense of dignity that can be experienced only through therapeutic horsemanship.

Our Mission

The Mission of Hope Therapeutic Horsemanship Center is to improve the quality of life for children and adults with special needs by providing horsemanship experiences in a warm, safe and compassionate environment.


We aspire to offer state-of-the-art equine-assisted therapies with a full range of services to our community.   As a recreational program, we help shape the future of our industry and the lives of people of all ages.



If it is in your blood to love horses, you share your life with them.
Our horses know our secrets;
We braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.
A barn is a sanctuary in an unsettled world,
A sheltered place where life’s true priorities are clear:
A warm place to sleep, someone who loves us,
And the luxury of regular meals…Some of us need these reminders.
