For people with special needs, riding can provide a myriad of therapeutic benefits conveying a sense of empowerment and mastery. Riding improves physical strength, balance, mobility and coordination. It helps to promote a better attention span, concentration, social awareness, confidence, and self-esteem.

Venture’s Morahan/Freson Therapeutic Equestrian Center consists of a large outdoor riding arena and an all-weather indoor riding center, providing year-round access.

Riding skills are taught step-by-step, with deference to the physical and cognitive abilities of the rider. Our staff is a caring and competent team who share a love of horses and riding, and, more importantly, a commitment to offer this unique and potentially life-changing experience to children and adults in our community.

Open to the public, we offer birthday parties in our party room overlooking the indoor riding arena, and there is a small animal farm onsite with sheep, goats, duck, and miniature horses to join in the festivities.

Please visit our Facebook page, and contact us to begin your equestrian experience today.
