"Our mission at the Center for Adaptive Riding, is to be the leading horsemanship organization for people of all abilities, providing therapeutic and recreational programs that enrich the lives of our riders and vaulters, their families, and our community."
Here at Center for Adaptive Riding (CAR) we focus on recreational riding with therapeutic benefit. Providing safe and fun horsemanship lessons for children and adults with and without cognitive or physical challenges is what we do.
Therapeutic riding has been shown to benefit individuals with sensory processing issues, muscle coordination, pain reduction, and classroom focus. Riders and vaulters report finding strength and independence through the power of the horse every year. See our Links page for more information.
We are a Member Center of PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) and follow the safety standards and guidelines of the 45 year old organization. All instructors at CAR have passed stringent PATH testing to become certified instructors, and continue their education annually. CAR has the only two PATH Intl. instructors in Nevada who have been certificated through PATH to mentor PATH Instructors in Training.
