Free Rein Therapeutic Riding is a Premier P.A.T.H. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) Riding Center located just south of downtown Spokane, Washington. We offer adaptive riding and horsemanship programs to children and adults with disabilities using horses as part of the therapy process. The riders in our program are very diverse. Their goals range from strengthening muscles and improving balance to problem solving and developing better focus and communication skills. Horses are amazing animals and tool we can use to improve both physical and emotional health. Horseback riding can improve body strength and balance; controlling an animal as large as a horse can increase confidence and motivate riders to progress their skills beyond where they thought they could. These new found skills, strength, and confidence very often carry into the riders' everyday lives.
Our goal at Free Rein is to provide a positive therapeutic environment for riders, their families, and our volunteers to learn, grow and build relationships in a caring, compassionate and fun atmosphere.
