Ranch came out Wild Horsemanship Center (WHC) from Stirrups N Strides Therapeutic Riding Center with confidence and saddling issues. Stirrups N Strides is a PATH accredited therapeutic riding program that helps disabled riders achieve higher levels of physical and mental health.
Ranch needed a broader foundation to be a safe and confident therapeutic riding horse as his previous training had only been in driving. He came to our Horses Helping Humans horse development program very unconfident about being handled or ridden. With in a few months of being with our staff and in our foundation training program, Ranch showed huge changes in confidence and understanding. He graduated or therapeutic riding program with high expectations of returning to Stirrup N Strides.
Due to navicular changes in his front hoofs WHC and Stirrups N Strides agreed to retire Ranch from therapeutic riding.
He found his forever home with a PATH certified instructor that works at Stirrups N Strides. He now does light trail rides for the family with confidence.
We wish Ranch and his new family well and WHC continues to work with Stirrups N Strides in the areas of staff education, horsemanship and business leadership through our Horses Helping Humans program
