The special bond between a horse and human can facilitate amazing changes. Increased self-confidence and self-esteem as well as increased communication skills where they previously may have been lacking. The warmth and rhythm of the horse can help the rider with their flexibility, strength, and balance.


HUGE Shout Outto 30 Kofa High School MCJROTC Jr. Marines who took the time out on a Saturday earlier this month to volunteer at Saddles of Joy. It was a beautiful site watching these young, dedicated students work so hard for us. Semper Fi Young Marines!

Military and First Responders make sacrifices every day that go unnoticed in our community. Saddles of Joy knows that their duties can be highly stressful, and it can be hard to manage emotions and adjustment. We here at Saddles always offered our therapeutic services to our veterans, military, and first responders, but now we want to actively announce we are here to help even more.

Please Join us at Saddles of Joy on any Saturday from 8-12 pm to meet the team and tour the ranch.  Remember the horses are your therapists, they are who you work with and bond with. More than ever Saddles of Joy wants you to know we are here for you and your family to help you focus on feeling better, manage your emotions, and remind you you're not alone!
