About Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center

Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center provides equine assisted services to Our Military Family which address physical and mental health needs. The movement of a horse simulates the human walk, allowing those with physical needs to receive the same full body stimulation walking would typically provide. This allows the rider to develop muscle tone, core strength, balance, coordination and more. Horses also serve as emotional mirrors for humans, allowing clients addressing mental health needs to gain understanding and control of their behaviors and internal emotions. Our therapy horses have helped many service members and veterans address PTSD, amputation, rebuilding of relationships with family and friends and much more. If you or a loved one is interested in receiving services at Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center, simply give us a call today to schedule a tour or consultation. We look forward to seeing you in the barn!
