New Hope Equine Assisted Therapy was founded in 2012 to provide therapeutic horseback riding to enhance the rider’s quality of life, both physically and mentally. New Hope is committed to serving the needs of children and adults with a wide variety of disabilities. We started with one rider in March of 2014 and now see 60+ riders a week. In the past six years, we transformed a foreclosed property, adding paddocks and a riding arena. Our mission is to bring hope, healing and happiness to our riders through encouraging the horse and human connection.
New Hope is a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horseback Riding) center where people with disabilities benefit from the use of horses for strengthening, rehabilitation, and fun. Some of the disabilities currently served are Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, Paralysis, Mental Health, Developmental Delays, Multiple Sclerosis, Tuberous Sclerosis, Pitt Hopkins, and Down Syndrome.
