Equine Assisted Programs

Registration for all riding programs for the 2019-2020 season are OPEN!

Here in The Bridge Center's Riding Center, we approach each student as an individual regardless of diagnoses. We build on each student’s existing support system to give them a customized approach that helps them reach goals in all aspects of their life. We consider the barn to be an extension of the classroom and use it to reinforce all the lessons our students are learning at home and school. We ask that you share your rider's 504 plan, IEP and/or behavior plans with us so we can incorporate them into your rider's lessons. We also welcome input and will incorporate feedback from families and professionals (Teacher/OT/SLP/PT/BCBAs) who know our students best. We look forward to meeting and working with your family!

  • Any and all forms for the Riding Center must be updated for the school year riding program for Sept 1, 2019.

All documents for School Year Riding participants will be renewed annually in September moving forward. Thank you for your understanding
