Adaptive Riding Centers

These are just a few of the many adaptive riding centers throughout the United States.  I have personally interacted with these as as a client, volunteer, or interacted with their staff.  This is not an endorsement, but a starting point for individuals who may need services or want to volunteer.  Without the help of the horses, instructors and countless volunteers I would not be where I am today.
