Whispering Meadows Ranch is a 100% volunteer-based, 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to enriching the lives of those with disabilities and special needs through our recreational, educational, and equine-assisted programs.
Whispering Meadows Ranch offers therapeutic horseback riding and horsemanship instruction to individuals with disabilities or special needs. Our goal is to improve physical, emotional, and social functioning through participation in a highly structured and safe program. Riders’ interaction with carefully selected and trained horses improves their balance, posture, flexibility, sensory awareness and endurance in addition to increasing confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, motivation, attention span and integration with non-disabled peers.
Our program certainly has therapeutic benefits and is meant to be a fun activity that aligns with the goals of other therapeutic interventions.
Each program is taught by PATH International (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) Certified Instructors. Whatever type of equine-assisted activity an individual chooses, our goal is to help them achieve their personal best in a friendly, professional and consistent environment.
