THE LIFT

CAN YOU HELP US REACH OUR GOAL?

Together we can make a difference! 

Changing lives is the mission of RISE Therapeutic Equestrian Center as we serve individuals with unique needs and abilities to experience healing and horsemanship.  When on a horse, our clients are experiencing movement, freedom and independence.  The horse’s movement has the extraordinary ability to mimic human walking by providing the same three dimensional movement of the pelvis while moving forward and experiencing wind, nature and natural challenges. Clients work toward independently mounting their horse using our wheelchair ramp or stairs with assistance appropriate to their individual level of need, requiring a team of up to four trained helpers.  The use of a mechanical lift at RISE will allow many of our clients to transition to their horse independently, which is empowering to the mind, body and soul.  More importantly, some individuals have physical, or cognitive challenges that require the use of a lift to safely ride a horse for the first time.  RISE is passionate about healing and committed to helping these individuals reach their goals while experiencing the joy of horsemanship.

We celebrate the laughter of a nonverbal child and gather to applaud the ribbon that accompanies a young riders first trot around the arena. A mechanical lift will allow individuals who need movement and laughter the most, the opportunity to ride a horse.   It’s not just fun, it’s a door that opens to change a life forever.  It is a door to strengthening, balance, walking and talking but it looks and smells like horses, saddles, hay, curry combs and ribbons!  Would you consider joining us at RISE Therapeutic Equestrian Center in opening this door for individuals with unique needs?
