We build on the magical connection between horse and human in a safe, structured environment to teach life skills and build self-confidence. Unlike other therapeutic type riding programs, Scooter’s Place encourages children with special needs to ride side by side with their siblings, friends, or parents. Few adaptive programs in our region offer this “mainstream” approach. We place particular focus on serving children on the autism spectrum. Best of all, we have no waiting list!
