Spectrum Saddle Club

The Spectrum Saddle Club is a therapeutic riding concept for children under the age of 17. This program will teach a holistic approach to horses starting with introduction and building a relationship, and continuing through daily care, grooming, tacking and foundational vaulting and riding skills. The Spectrum Saddle Club program is "sensory friendly" and will be tailored to the physical, cognitive and social-emotional needs of individual participants. Instructors are PATH Intl. Certified Riding and this program will utilize both The Discovery Trail and the Equicizer.
