The nonprofit Horseplay Therapeutic Riding Center, which is affiliated with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, (PATH International), offers a year-round therapeutic recreational horseback-riding program for special needs children and adults. For more information, click on "Enrolling" above.
Riding develops strength and balance, and increases self-esteem, benefiting individuals with conditions such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, Down Syndrome, autism, brain injury or head trauma, visual and and hearing impairments, mental or learning disorders and muscular dystrophy.

All sessions are 45 minutes.

We would also like to thank Genentech for their generous donation as well.
I am the owner of the Landmark Image, a Marketing and Print Communications comapy in Vacaville, and I have been volunteering for almost 2 years. After seeing a notice in the newspaper, it sounded interesting. I am also the District Advancement Chairperson for Boy Scouts, and when I found out the Horseplay tack room needed updating I found a scout in our district that needed a project. The project was completed in July. cont'd
