Come, bring the kids, visit the ranch and petting farm, and have a horseback ride. Horseback rides are available if we have enough volunteers that day. Wear sturdy shoes! Vendors welcomed!

Saturday Play Day from 8 am-12 pm, times are adjusted seasonally. For the safety of horses, volunteers, and visitors, we will put the riding horses away when the ambient temperature reaches 95 degrees. Thank you for supporting Saddles of Joy!

The term hippotherapy refers to how occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech-language pathology professionals use evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning in the purposeful manipulation of equine movement as a therapy tool to engage sensory, neuromotor and cognitive systems to promote functional outcomes.

Best practice dictates that occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech-language pathology professionals integrate hippotherapy into the patient’s plan of care, along with other therapy tools and/or strategies. 

(American Hippotherapy Association, 2019)
