Our Program

Misty Meadows Mitey Riders provides equine-assisted therapy to special needs children, ranging in age from 5-17, with varying conditions including autism, cerebral palsy and Down Syndrome, and more. Over 60 families come each week to participate in a unique and creative therapeutic riding program. Riders experience a variety of activities which challenge them cognitively, physically and socially, all while developing a long-term relationship with horses. Therapeutic riding truly is a one-of-a-kind experience for all who participate – riders, parents, volunteers, instructors and the horses as well!
