Welcome to the Santa Ynez Valley

Therapeutic Riding Program

The Santa Ynez Valley Therapeutic Riding Program offers lessons 5-days a week at the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley Equestrian Center. We have 28 years of success and welcome new students.  We are a Premier Accredited Center with PATH International, the highest standard in therapeutic riding.

“The horse’s gait, or walking pattern, is very similar to that of the human.   Riding on a horse helps people who otherwise might have difficulty walking experience a proper form of gait.  This, in turn, allows their muscles to be properly conditioned.  It also stimulates the rider’s spinal cord and the part of the brain that controls speech.  These benefits often carry through to other aspects of their lives, so we typically see lasting results.   I have seen significant progress in patients even after just a few sessions of riding at the Santa Ynez Valley Therapeutic Riding Program.”  Mary Beth Johnson, Physical Therapist
