The Hope Center

Is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing therapeutic horseback riding and activities for individuals with disabilities.

Equine-Assisted Therapy offers able and developmentally disabled persons with a variety of physical and mental challenges an alternative to the traditional clinical setting by providing therapy on horseback.  Because of 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.  An integrated team of instructors and volunteers work with the rider and horse to promote the success, the freedom, and the dignity that can be experienced 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, providing a full range of services to our community.   As a therapeutic 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.
