The goal of Northland Therapeutic Riding Center is to improve the quality of life of persons with special needs, and create a sense of hope in their future. Therapeutic Riding uses equine-oriented activities to positively impact the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well-being of people with special needs from ages 2 to 80 years. The horse is a unique therapy tool in that its walk is rhythmic and repetitive and encourages movement responses in riders that are similar to human movement patterns of the pelvis while walking.

Therapeutic riding can benefit children and adults with many special challenges, including: Down Syndrome, Autism, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Speech, Vision, and Hearing Challenges, Spina Bifida, Deaf, Blind, Stroke, Cognitive, Social, and Behavioral challenges. Many individuals not only have one, but several debilitating diseases.

Therapeutic riding can provide: improved balance, posture and coordination; increased muscle tone and strength; increased range of motion and flexibility; increased problem-solving skills and concentration; and increased confidence, patience, and self-esteem. It is also fun!
