Mission Statement:

The mission of Cloud Dancers Therapeutic Horsemanship Program is to provide equine assisted activities to individuals with physical, developmental, emotional and/or social needs through innovative riding, vaulting and ground programs. Our motto is Improving Lives with Every Ride".

Primary Programs:

Cloud Dancers is an Affiliate Center Member of PATH Intl. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International). Our PATH certified instructors and trained volunteers focus on riders' abilities & goals. While many of our riders have serious physical and developmental limitations, they can overcome some of the barriers they experience in their everyday lives by using skills learned while riding. Fun games on horseback, while following directions to ride the horse from one area to another, lead to increased mobility, balance & core strength & hand-eye coordination, along with increased self-confidence, pride, and responsibility. The incredible intuitive nature of horses teaches compassion, patience, love, leadership, communication, teamwork and bravery. There is no end to the benefits of the horse-human bond.

Other Programs:

We also provide vaulting lessons, which is gymnastic movement on the back of a moving horse--promotes balance, core strength, focus & teamwork & pride in accomplishments. Students learn about horse care, grooming, tacking, anatomy and more.
