Equine activities for those with physical, mental, or emotional challenges
Thank you for your interest in our therapeutic riding program. We think you’ll find our program to be beneficial to your whole family, not only to your rider.
Our goal each year is to create joyful memories and a fun-filled experience for everyone. To make this goal a reality, we need your input. Completing the following forms will truly help us get to know your rider better. Closer to the start of your rider’s session, a member of our staff will reach out to you to set goals for your child based on your expectations and your rider’s abilities.
Our programs are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturday mornings between April and November. Up to 3 riders per hour-long ride will participate, and we work to group riders with similar abilities together. Riders will participate in both riding activities and non-riding activities during their session. In 2019, Dream Riders will be offering 3 riding sessions, each 10 weeks in length. The sessions will be led by a trained instructor and supported through trained volunteers.
To enroll your rider in our program we ask that you fully complete the following 4 forms and return them along with your riding fee of $150.00 to:
Dream Riders of Kentucky, P.O. Box 172, Philpot, KY 42366
Ride sessions will be scheduled on a first come basis and are based on availability for those who have their entire packet completed correctly and turned in with the rider fee.
To ensure safety of our horses, Dream Riders has established a rider weight limit of 200 pounds. This weight limit will be strictly enforced and riders may be asked to weigh in before riding. For the safety of the riders, helmets, long pants, and closed-toe shoes are required.
