Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Prancing Horse works to enhance the lives of individuals with special needs by providing a safe environment for therapeutic horsemanship. Prancing Horse uses horses to provide equine therapy to children and adults, including wounded warriors and their families, with mental and physical disabilities.
Our mission is to enhance the lives of individuals with special needs by providing a safe environment for therapeutic horsemanship. We provide adaptive riding and ground lessons to people with mental, cognitive and/or physical disabilities. We accept clients as young as 3 years with no upper age limit. They are from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds and economic levels. Our Freedom Reins program is specifically designed for post 9/11 wounded warriors and their families. Prancing Horse Center for Therapeutic Riding is certified at the Premier level by PATH (Professional Association for Therapeutic Horsemanship) International and all of our instructors are PATH certified. Each new client is assessed and specific, individualized goals are set. Age appropriate lessons and activities are developed to meet his/her needs. Progress is documented periodically during the program, changes are made as appropriate and we complete a final evaluation at the end. In addition to private clients, wounded warriors, and dependants of active duty military personnel, we are currently providing equine therapy to special needs students at 6 Moore County public schools and to children with special needs from the Sandhills Children Center (a private, non-profit organization that offers an inclusive child developmental day program).
