The Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Program provides equine assisted activities and therapeutic riding to children and adults with disabilities, youth-at-risk, veterans and their families in an inclusive, community setting. We work with those who are challenged physically, mentally, and emotionally. By focusing on each rider's ability rather than disability, we have enjoyed a high rate of success in areas such as improved balance, coordination, muscular strength, social skills, and self-confidence.

Our program is accredited and nationally recognized by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA). Lessons are taught by NARHA Certified Riding Instructors assisted by up to threed volunteers per rider. This structure enables our riders to participate in a challenging, physically active sport. Through this unique riding opportunity, our students achieve enriched quality of life.
