We will be offering Therapeutic Riding classes Wednesday and Thursday from June 14 through August 17. Classes will continue to focus on therapeutic riding skills building on previous skills and working toward new goals for all riders. The fee for the 10 weeks of therapeutic riding classes is $400 for group lessons and $500 for private lessons. Equine -assisted Learning classes will be held on Mondays. As a pilot program for students referred for the pilot, the fee will be limited to the $50 deposit.
REINS Therapeutic Riding is able to subsidize the majority of this cost through the generosity of individual and corporate sponsors as well as foundation grants and proceeds from fundraising events. Our rider fees cover less than 25% of the actual cost. We will be holding an orientation session in June for each new participants for instructor evaluation and so they are familiar with the site.
