OUR MISSION

HRET is passionately committed to empowering the lives of individuals with varied physical, emotional, cognitive, and social abilities through the spirit of the horse  HRET offers a variety of skill appropriate classes meeting the needs of preschoolers on our ponies to independent riders on our program safe horses. We are an equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) program that provides horse and pony therapeutic riding and activities. Our classes are approximately an hour long and incorporate grooming and bonding time with horses or ponies in addition to riding. 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Our program cannot exist without your help.  By volunteering, donating goods or services, or financially contributing, you are helping us expand our programs and increase the amount of riders we serve. We strive to accommodate every rider.  Please help us reach our goal of being able to never turn anyone away! For many riders, cost can be a barrier- with your support and rider sponsorships, you can allow a rider to start and continue experiencing the empowerment of the horse.
