Our Hippotherapy & Therapeutic Riding Program

Thank you for your interest in our Rein-Bow Riding Academy program. We believe in the quality and potential results of hippotherapy and therapeutic riding, and we are excited about your interest in our program!

Hippotherapy and therapeutic riding activities are provided at an arena in Huron, TN.  Riding sessions are held on Tuesdays from 4:15 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. The number of participants in the program is limited to approximately 20 riders each week. To qualify for consideration, applicants must be:

  1. At least two years old
  2.  Have a diagnosis associated with developmental delay
  3. Weigh no more than 200 pounds
  4. Have no medical contradictions for equine (horse) therapy

Since most insurance does not cover Hippotherapy, much fundraising and compassionate giving go into making this program successful. The people of West Tennessee believe in our Rein-Bow Riding Academy and its impact on lives. We are blessed to have secured enough funding to offset the cost of each rider’s participation in the program this year. Donations are always welcome and appreciated!
